There's no other jazz festival in the world like Monterey Jazz Festival, which is 60+ years strong — but who's counting? While clothing styles and beverage preferences have changed there are many aspects of jazz music that remain and are categorized as Classics! If you're into both cutting edge and Classics, the Monterey Jazz Festival is the one event you should miss.
