World-acclaimed jazz artists amazed guests at the Ocean Institute’s ninth annual Jazz in January gala. Famed saxophonists Dave Koz and Euge Groove, along with French keyboardist Philippe Saisse, joined trumpeter Rick Braun in an electrifying performance. Guests took in breathtaking views from the Ocean Institute’s aquarium setting in the Dana Point Harbor while enjoying a four-course dinner created by executive chefs from local premier resorts. The evening’s festivities raised $130,000 to support the Ocean Institute’s educational programs.
