In the Valley of the Sun, Jazz initiated the turnaround of the absence of live performances after fourteen months. Scottsdale led live music awakening on April 6 with "The Nayo Jones Experience" from New Orleans performing on the Fountain Stage lawn along side of the Scottsdale Center For The Performing Arts. Another live performance was held on April 30th, which concluded Jazz Appreciation Month in Scottsdale, with a star studded Scottsdale Jazz Festival.
