The Savannah Jazz veterans and hall of fame bands join the Savannah-Safe Jazz Festival for Spicy Jazz Saturday.

Savannah’s jazz history is as old and important as that of New Orleans, and Savannah Jazz continues to foster this legacy.

Always one of the highlights of the festival, The Savannah Jazz Hall of Fame All-Stars performance features inductees Teddy Adams, Howard Paul, Huxsie Scott, Delbert Felix and Randall Reese.

Legends in the Hall of Fame include Johnny Mercer, Jabbo Smith, King James Oliver, Ben Riley, Ken Palmer, Irene Reid and Ben Tucker, among many others.

To be considered for induction, members must have some kind of impact on the regional, national and international levels.
