For an "off" year, the Austin Arts & Jazz Festival has some impressive names for its 13th year. Besides headliner Jason Moran, former Austinite and Count Basie Orchestra vocalist Carmen Bradford will put in an appearance at the all-indoor 2001 festivities. Organizer Harold McMillan says he's especially excited to be trying out the facilities at Symphony Square. "We're thinking about trying something like a subscription series," he says, "and Symphony Square seems like a great place to do it."
