Resident of the Fenway will again hear the sounds of New Orleans-inspired Jazz in one of their parks when the annual Swingin’ in the Fens concert returns to the neighborhood.

The free outdoor concert is set to return to Ramler Park Wednesday, July 17, at 6:30 p.m., where the Jelani Bauman Quartet will perform for picnickers and park visitors.

The Jelani Bauman Quartet is led by Berklee College of Music alumnus Jelani Bauman and is influenced by American musicians ranging from Billy Strayhorn and Miles Davis to Isaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfield. The group also draws on Bauman’s New Orleans culture and heritage.

The annual concert on Peterborough Street is part of Berklee’s Summer in the City series, which presents more than 200 free outdoor concerts across the city from May through September. The Fenway Civic Association and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department also help put on the Fenway concert.

If there is inclement weather, Swingin’ in the Fens will be postponed to July 24 at 6:30 p.m.
