SUISUN CITY - Jazz will fill Sunday afternoons on the Suisun City waterfront starting this weekend when the Sunday Jazz Free Concert series kicks off.

Vallejo native Dalt Williams and his quartet will host the first concert of the seven-week series with the most popular jazz tunes from the 1920s to the 1960s.

All of the two-hour performances kick off at 3 p.m. at the Harbor Plaza in Suisun City's Old Town.

Williams' quartet has performed at jazz festivals all around the San Francisco Bay Area since it formed in 2001 and has performed with music notables such as Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett and Quincy Jones.

Keith Stout's Alive Music Orchestra, augmented by the Singers in Harmony, will follow Williams' lead on July 17 with music ranging from contemporary to traditional jazz as well as big band and gospel music.

Following on successive Sunday afternoons will be performances by SMG Band, formerly known as Dean Jackson & Co. (July 24); the Delbert Bump Band (July 31); three-year Jazz Concert veterans Second Planet Bank (Aug. 7); Touch of Jazz (Aug. 14) and Reality Check (Aug. 21).
