ORINDA -- The Third Annual Orinda Jazz Festival comes to the Orinda Library Auditorium and Courtyard from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, with music coming from two stages -- one in the courtyard adjacent to the library auditorium and the other inside the auditorium.

A one-day event benefiting The Orinda Arts Council's community programs, it will be highlighted by featured artist Jason Marsalis, a vibraphonist and the youngest member of the First Family of Jazz from New Orleans, also including Wynton and Branford Marsalis.

Other scheduled headliners are two-time Grammy Award recipient Mads Tolling, an internationally renowned violinist and soloist for Grammy Award Winning Turtle Island Quartet; Claudia Villela, the magnificent Brazilian Jazz singer and pianist, internationally acclaimed for her distinct poetic Brazilian lyrics and bossa nova repertoire; popular Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center performer Carol Alban, releasing her new CD "Songs for Kids of All Ages," featuring Marsalis and Tolling; award winning jazz performer and educator Bob Athayde of Lafayette; multitalented Latin Jazz performer Rene Escovedo on drums and percussion; Los Angeles-based jazz sensation the Brian Kinler Band; upright and electric bassist Aaron Germain; local youth artists Dominant Seven and Miramonte Jazz Ensemble, and other celebrated performers.

The master of ceremonies is KRON TV personality Stanley Roberts.

As a special opportunity for aspiring musicians of all ages, free community workshops will be provided from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. by Jason Marsalis (drums), Mads Tolling (jazz violin) and Bob Athayde (improvisation).
