At the cancellation of this year’s 2020 Northwest Jazz Festival in Historic Lewiston, NY, it was met with much heartbreak (see the JazzBuffalo article The Heartbreaking Loss Of A Historic Lineup For The 2020 Northwest Jazz Festival). The festival was set to have another momentous year of presenting historic jazz, international jazz artists, and some of the best local and regional talent in the area.
