ORLANDO, Fla. – Mixed with the blaring sirens and bleating horns of downtown Orlando are the sweet sounds of saxophones and ivory keys, music sure to mingle over the chaos of the city center.

That’s what audiences can expect when the first D.T.O. Jazz Fest comes to the Dr. Phillips Center in Orlando.
