On behalf of everyone at New England Public Radio, thank you for joining us at the Hotel Northampton Saturday night for Jazz, Baby! — what a night it was!

We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

We have a few snapshots from the event in the slideshow above, or relive to full evening on the album on Facebook.

If you had your portrait taken by Sloan Norris Tomlinson, photographer to the stars, he will be sending you your image, just as soon as it's ready... in the meantime, click here to see your snazzy self and the rest of the dew droppers and bearcats having a grand old time at The Hotel Northampton!
