The fest showcased the global musical inventions and dimensions of musicians from three continents —from the French harmonica player Frédéric Yonnet to the New Orleans/Brooklyn-based High and Mighty Brass Band—in a free and fun setting.

The Clifford Brown Jazz Festival is a free jazz music festival held annually in June at Rodney Square in Wilmington, Delaware, USA. The first festival was held in 1989 on the open lawn in the center of the city, and has grown into the largest free jazz festival on the East Coast.
