One of the weirdest aspects of our very weird pandemic year was having to try to enjoy events virtually instead of in person. Now ACTUAL events are returning as more and more of us become vaccinated. Case in point: The Hartford Jazz Festival is making its in-person return Friday, July 16, through Sunday, July 18, in Bushnell Park. The last year this event allowed full attendance, it welcomed 70,000 music fans. Hartford Jazz Festival President Charles Christie joined All Things Considered to preview this weekend’s festival lineup.
