The 10th annual Miles Davis Jazz Festival is today and organizers believe this is could be one of the best line-ups yet. Artists include the Montez Coleman Trio; opening act is saxophonist Fred Walker, and also appearing is trumpeter Danny Campbell's Quartet. The show will take place at the Jacoby Arts Center in Alton from 6-10pm.
Ken Whiteside is one of the organizers of the festival, which is sponsored by the Alton Museum of History and Art, and says honoring Davis with a musical celebration is important.
