St. Paul Winter Music Festival at Landmark Plaza, February 23-25 PDF Print

Over the few years, KBEM Radio and the Hot Summer Jazz Festival have combined forces to sponsor a one-day midwinter jazz festival. Over time the festival has moved from the old Dakota in St. Paul to the Millennium Hotel in downtown Minneapolis, finally to the west metro Doubletree Inn in March 2006. Finally, the winter jazz extravaganza returns to St. Paul as part of the first (hopefully annual) St. Paul Music Festival, February 23-25, centered around the historic Landmark Plaza in the center of downtown at 5th and Market Streets. Three days of music should appeal to everyone’s taste—Rock Night on Friday, a full day of blues on Saturday, and a day-long jazz celebration on Sunday. Tickets are sold separately for each event (see below), with a discount for advance purchase.

Main events will take place in the heated “freespan” tent on Landmark Plaza, with seating for 500 and concessions (food, soft drinks, beer and wine). But the music doesn’t end there as festival tickets allow free entry to additional entertainment later each evening—more rock on Friday night at the 4th Street Station, and a blues and jazz jam with the Tuesday Night Band at the Artists Quarter, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Greg Rockingham: Deep Blue Organ Trio
The Winter Delights Jazz Fair will be presented at the Chicago Cultural Center 77 E. Randolph St, January 26-27, 2007.

The Jazz Fair has a 29 year history of showcasing the emerging and long-established jazz talen. The Jazz Fair recognizes the diverse communities and directions the music has generated and encourages the preservation and evolution of each of its forms. It truly is an event unique to Chicago--by virtue of the fact that nowhere else has the local jazz community been given the time and space to be recognized as the sum of all of its diverse parts.

Chicago Jazz Jams is the new name for the part of the winter festival that is programmed by the Jazz Institute. Presented on Friday, January 26th, this year as always, we will once again cover the whole spectrum of music for all generations -- from a jam session with top young jazz players to the premiere of a new suite of compositions by pianist Ryan Cohan to an “only-in-Chicago” mix of blues and traditional Japanese music with Yoko Noge’s Japanesque to the cool sounds of the Deep Blue Organ Trio.

On Saturday the 27th, we will present a lineup of Jazz Cinema, including the new film about Edward Wilkerson's Shadow Vignettes, ODD Eye O Mumbo Jumbo.

Where at one time can you find nearly 8,000 jazz performers, educators, journalists, photographers, producers, promoters, students and serious fans outside of the world’s largest jazz festivals? At the International Association of Jazz Educators’ 34th Annual Conference! The 2007 event will be held on the same site as the 2006 conference, right in the heart of midtown Manhattan at the New York Hilton/Sheraton New York, January 10-13. Over 200 concerts, panels and workshops are scheduled.

The world’s largest conference in the name of jazz draws individuals and ensembles from 45 nations for four days of performances, clinics, demonstrations, panel discussions, artist and industry exhibits, research presentations, award ceremonies, interviews, and informal networking. And that’s just what takes place within the convention centers. Outside of the hotels, area jazz clubs typically schedule special shows, taking advantage of the surge of jazz-bent tourists and the congregation of the world’s top artists. Notes IAJE Executive Director Bill McFarlin, “The IAJE Conference always takes on a special energy when we meet in New York. It’s exciting to see the city, already credited as the epicenter of the jazz universe, explode with thousands of jazz professionals and educators, many of whom can be found patronizing New York’s jazz clubs and live music venues throughout the week.”
