Philadelphia United Jazz Festival
The second annual Philadelphia United Jazz Festival is gearing up to take over two city blocks on the west side of South Street, and the goal is to showcase Philadelphia-bred musicians.
Philadelphia’s first international exposition kicks off Monday and includes more than 100 events over 47 days.
Bassist Warren Oree co-produced the West Oak Lane Jazz and Arts Festival with partner Graziella Dinuzzo for eight years. But when the festival was cancelled in 2012, he began looking for a way to rebuild the Philadelphia jazz scene.
