Come mid-September, locals and jazz lovers from across the country can gather to hear the annual Ocean Beach Jazz Fest, presenting some of the top jazz names around San Diego. On September 11, you’ll be able to watch the shows on seven enormous stages with 26 well-known bands and solo artists as they pump out the smooth harmonic tones of the jazz genre.
