In Lieu of 1000 Words: The 2013 Prairie Village Jazz Festival, Part 2

Last week, I offered photos from the daytime acts. This week, let’s take a look at the 2013 Prairie Village Jazz Festival headliners. Marilyn Maye took the stage just as the sun set (as always, clicking on a photo should open a larger version of it).
