SOMERVILLE, NJ - He’s been dubbed the “Piano Prince of New Orleans,” but for a few hours late Sunday afternoon, Davell Crawford presided as the “King of the Central New Jersey Jazz Festival,” entertaining thousands of jazz aficionados gathered on East Main Street and the lawn of the historic Somerset County Courthouse.

Crawford, accompanied by drums and bass, was accorded the honor of the final set as the three-day jazz fest, which began in Flemington Friday before moving to New Brunswick on Saturday, drew to a close.

Dozens of jazz musicians were on stage all three days.
