Before its focus was solely jazz, the Branford Recreation Department would feature a variety of genres during these free concerts.  A wide span of talent has graced the town green, from blues and country to big band and swing.  During a meeting, residents requested that the musical focus stay on jazz, for consistency.  The board agreed and a committee was formed to organize the first official Branford Jazz on the Green concert.
