Chattanooga Traditional Jazz Festival 2010 Video
   The 2010 Chattanooga Traditional Jazz Festival was especially good, according to PRJC member Bill S. who wrote to Hot Jazz Flashes, since Jim Ritter, Frank Mesich, and John Skillman of the Buck Creek Jazz Band were there and played a set together. PRJC members can see the band, as well a few local PRJC members in Bill's YouTube video below. (Video is about 6.5 minutes, and PRJC members are spotted around the 5-min mark.) Thanks for sharing, Bill!
