SummerJazz kicked off Saturday night here in Naples

The Naples SummerJazz program got off to a great start Saturday night at the Naples Beach Hotel. As mentioned in an earlier post, Mike MacArthur was the feature artist and really got the crowd involved. We were quite hot and humid when we first arrived, but a rain storm from the gulf swept through the area and everyone ran for cover as Mike played through the storm. Afterwards, the night was filled with a cool breeze and cool jazz. Check my other post for the SummerJazz schedule.
