PURE JAZZ: Dizzy Gillespie protege Jon Faddis performs at this year's Silicon Valley Jazz Festival, along with much of the Bay's young talent.

Featuring a mix of performances by local school groups, Bay Area-based professional musicians and national headliners, the Silicon Valley Jazz Festival returns this weekend. Saturday kicks off with a trio of performances by student musician groups from Tierra Linda Middle School, CSM and Stanford before the U.S. Air Force’s Commanders Jazz Ensemble takes the stage. Sunday opens with performances by a slew of school-based groups as well, which will lead into a set by Dizzy Gillespie protégé Jon Faddis. The fest will also feature a beer and wine garden with a little help from Old County Cellars and Devil’s Canyon Brewing Company.
