On the final evening of the festival, a lineup of great local musicians play a series of shows in City Hall Park. This event has been organized in collaboration with the Vermont Blues Society as a tribute to the late saxophonist Joe Moore, who passed earlier this year. Joe Moore was a longtime player at Burlington Discover Jazz Festival, going all the way back to the very first festival in 1984. Just last year, he performed as part of Myra Flynn’s closing night performance on the Flynn Main Stage, then played a show immediately after at the Main Street block party to close out the 40th annual jazz festival. This tribute concert honoring Joe Moore’s legacy and influence features many local musicians who played with him over the years, including Pork Tornado, Dwight & Nicole, Myra Flynn, All Night Boogie Band, and Left Eye Jump “House Band.”
