"I think it's terrific. I think it will remind people that you can do free things and have a good time," said Joshua Richmond.

Whether you walk to the Hollywood and Highland complex, drive or take the Metro Red Line, costs are low, the quality of entertainment is high and all ages are welcome.

"People are very conscious about what is going on in the economy and gas certainly plays a role in that. There are very few opportunities to get such a high quality of jazz for free and Hollywood and Highland provides that every week," said KJAZZ Station Manager Stephanie Levine.

"We search for the best jazz artists. We look for several different styles. Every single concert is great and has several different musicians. The audience is really exposed to different types of jazz," said Levine.

And for a $10 donation that benefits Project Angel Food, you can add a little wine and cheese to your musical evening.

"The music is great and the location is beautiful. You've got beautiful weather and a great setting, plus your supporting a good cause," said Levine.

"All of these guys that are playing in the band, people do not realize, are professional artists. So I think that it is wonderful that people are here because it is free. This is the time where we need things that are free," said Carole Jaye.
