In Photos: Beaches Jazz Festival 2009 Kicks Off

The 21st Annual Beaches International Jazz Festival opened at Woodbine Park yesterday. Despite an early downpour and the cooler weather, the crowds turned up with blankets and umbrellas.

Woodbine Park was quickly filled with people who came to enjoy the eclectic mix of music from artists like soul and R&B stalwart Sean Jones, blues-driven powerhouse Blackburn and the sax and guitar swirl of improv specialists ZimZum.
