From its inception, the Newport Jazz Festival has been known for bringing in performers who represent diversity and excellence in jazz, America's only original musical genre. The line-up for the JVC Jazz Festival - Newport, RI, to be held August 11 - 13 includes the McCoy Tyner Impulse Records All-star Sextet with Donald Harrison, Wallace Roney, Steve Turre, Charnett Moffett, Eric Gravatt & Eric Alexander; the powerhouse duo of Eddie Palmieri & Brian Lynch; and Jenny Scheinman, whose album was considered one of the best of the year by the New York Times, have been added to an already star-studded roster," said Wein. George Benson, Al Jarreau, Dave Brubeck are just a few of the other artists that are part of the 52nd year of the famed Newport Jazz Festival, now sponsored by JVC.

George Wein, 80-years old, has produced the festival since it's inception in 1954, added, "I'm as proud of the 2006 JVC Jazz Festival Newport as any event I've ever created. It represents a total picture of what the jazz scene is in America today."

The coolest festival in the Crescent City features the hottest jazz around! The sixth annual Satchmo SummerFest, a four-day event celebrating the lasting influence of jazz icon, international cultural ambassador and native son, Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong, will be held August 3 – August 6, 2006.

Due to the damaging effects of Hurricane Katrina the U.S. Mint is unable to host Satchmo SummerFest in 2006 as it did in previous years. In light of that the French Market has graciously donated space between Ursulines and Barracks Street for Satchmo SummerFest. Festival-goers will again enjoy what makes Satchmo SummerFest so special - free jazz performances, delicious local cuisine in Red Bean Alley, educating seminars, children's activities, art exhibits, a "Satchmo Club Strut," a very special evening concert, a Jazz Mass and authentic second-line parade, and much more. With so many festivities planned, it's no wonder why Satchmo SummerFest has quickly become a summertime favorite and one of the Southeast Tourism Society's Top 20 Events.

Complete schedule follows. For more information, call (800) 673-5725, (504) 522-5730, or visit www.fqfi.org for more info.

Chicago is the African American family reunion capital of the world. So, it is no surprise that one of the most popular events to have a family reunion is at the annual JazzFest Heritage Music Weekend, which takes place August 4-6 at the South Shore Cultural Center, 7059 South Shore Drive.

This year’s 25th Anniversary theme is “Connecting Family Ties.” And what better way to emphasize family than to bring some of Chicago’s and New Orleans’ jazz families together to perform at this free, two-day annual event. Throughout the weekend, almost every performer has either a musical family or New Orleans connection—starting with Darius de Haas, who will kick-off the weekend at the “We Love You Madly” Awards Gala on Friday, August 4. On Saturday, the son of bassist Eddie de Haas and Jazz Unites’ founder, Geraldine de Haas, will join his Grammy nominated uncle Andy Bey on stage to perform.

On Sunday, another talented family, the Jordans, will grace the stage. The extraordinary New Orleans siblings are helping to keep the tradition of great musical families from the Crescent City alive. Led by Marlon Jordan on trumpet, Rachel Jordan on violin, and Kent Jordan on flute, the group is rounded out by the vocals of Stephanie Jordan—who critics are calling one of the next great jazz singers.

Better Than Ever, and a Great “Price”: The 2006 Iowa City Jazz Festival PDF Print

After my 4th consecutive trek to the Iowa City Jazz Festival, I am convinced this would be on my annual event calendar even if this was not my hometown. Nostalgia might have prompted my first trip but the quality of the music and organization bring me back. Among free public festivals nationwide, the ICJF has deservedly earned its “top ten” reputation, and the recent 2006 edition was arguable the finest yet. Not only were we treated to reasonably good weather and such top talents as the Bad Plus, Geoffrey Keezer, Robin Eubanks and Mingus Dynasty, we also had the opportunity to hear a young vocalist who may well be the connection between the next generation and the likes of Ella and Sarah, Rachel Price. Add to these benefits the sounds of the best in local and student musicians on the side stages and the classiest “street food” in mid-America, and the sum total is one hot weekend.
