Murmurations are groups of starlings that twist and turn while flying together in a giant flock. People watch in amazement, wondering how they don’t ever run into each other.
That is what local musician Kenny Blake likens to jazz music.
“They’re not thinking. They’re not acting. They’re just doing it all together,” he said.
Blake is one of the headliners for this year’s 20th-anniversary celebration of the Monroeville Jazz Festival.
The event will be held Sept. 2 at the Tall Trees Amphitheatre in Monroeville Community Park West. The entertainment will begin at 1 p.m. and run until 8. There is no fee to attend, and guests are reminded to bring blankets and chairs.
The jazz festival is completely funded by sponsors and for the past few years it has been coordinated by the Monroeville Foundation, taking over from previous organizer Chuck Summerville.
