Landmark MS Jazz plays it cool at Monterey Jazz Festival
Landmark Jazz band There’s only one way to play jazz, and that’s “real cool” – which is just what the Landmark Middle School Jazz Band did recently when they took the stage at the Next Generation Jazz Festival at Monterey.

The Knights were invited to perform based on a demo video submitted to organizers by band director Michael Weeks. The combo turned in a tight 50- minute set that would bring a smile to the face of any seasoned jazz fan.

Take a listen to their take on the jazz standard “My Funny Valentine” below.

These are some talented musicians!

Appropriately enough, for musicians of middle-school age, the venue for their performance was the “Turn 12 Bar & Grill.”
