A local Jazz Festival kicks in on Friday night.
"It’s one of the largest free concerts in the region and it’s recognized throughout the state. People come from all over," said producer Lorenzo Nastasi.
It’s called the Balcones Heights Jazz Festival and it’s known primarily for smooth jazz. But it’s not all just that.
“We’ve had performers that do some Latin Jazz. And one of the things I’ve tried to do more in the last couple of years is bring in more women performers,” said Nastasi.
