Join 100+ musicians for 10 days of jazz, smack dab in the middle of January, at the Tucson Jazz Festival Jan. 13-22.
Joshua Redman (winner of the 1991 Thelonious Monk International Saxophone Competition) gets things going on opening day, live at Centennial Hall. Monday the 16th (MLK Day) marks the annual, all-day Downtown Jazz Fiesta at Hotel Congress Plaza featuring Gunhild Carling, Gabriel Ayala, Homero Cerón Latin Jazz Nonet, and Elliot Mason (the festival’s artist-in-residence) among others.
An album release by the Alex Weitz Quartet plus a performance by Grammy-winner Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers round out the star-studded lineup.
