Alternating drizzles and downpours made the Red Bank Jazz & Blues Festival a damp and occasionally drenching affair for a good part of the weekend.
But Saturday afternoon’s rain ended just in time for Toni Lynn Washington’s walloping show before a sparse crowd. "I don’t need no doctor," she sang, "cuz I know what’s ailin’ me…."
The sun finally broke through the clouds on Sunday, bringing out throngs and giving the festival a nice upbeat finish.
But oh, what might have been, right?
