Images of Detroit ’17

2017 artist-in-residence Wayne Shorter, Kamasi Washington and more

What a bummer: Inclement weather prevented the second half of the final day of the 2017 Detroit Jazz Festival from taking place. Sets including the Vijay Iyer Sextet, Stanley Clarke (his second weather-related cancellation at the Detroit fest in recent years), a tribute to Elvin Jones featuring Dave Liebman, Karriem Riggins with Esperanza Spalding, and Wayne Shorter’s performance of his “Emanon” with the Detroit Jazz Festival Orchestra just weren’t meant to be. Still, fours days of fantastic music did go down as planned. Enjoy these images, by Marek Lazarski, of Sunday and Monday’s performances, and check out photos from Friday and Saturday as well.
