It lists hundreds of jazz events through November, and has stories of local jazz musicians, jazz studies at colleges, and listings of live jazz in many venues. Upcoming events include the Berkshire Getaway Jazz Weekend Sept. 14-16,2nd Annual Merrimack Valley Jazz Festival Aug. 10-11, and Holyoke Latin Jazz Festival Oct. 13.
