Sweet, sassy sounds of jazz spice up Evergreen

Skirts swirled and fingers twirled as dancers moved to smoothly styled tunes played by the Blue Suitcase Trio at the Evergreen Jazz Festival on Saturday afternoon. 

The New York-based musicians were among many talented groups that performed during the annual three-day festival in Evergreen.

While the trio was playing in the ballroom of the Evergreen Elks Lodge, Big Mama Sue belted out songs that were popular in the early 1900s at the club’s patio venue.
