MONTEREY JAZZ FESTIVAL ON TOUR

Wharton Center for Performing Arts

750 E. Shaw Ln
Michigan State University
East Lansing, MI 48824

At 60 years of age, Monterey Jazz Festival holds the distinction of being the longest consecutively-running jazz festival in the world. This tour celebrates Monterey Jazz Festival’s legacy of expanding the boundaries of live jazz. This performance, featuring the incomparable young vocalist, international superstar and Grammy® Award winner, Cécile McLorin Salvant, demonstrates Monterey Jazz Festival’s “traditional-untraditionalist” attitude, jazz-with-a-purpose exuberance, and joyful fun that continue to be their hallmarks. Accompanying Cécile is a stellar lineup led by East Lansing favorites Christian Sands at the piano and the versatile Bria Skonberg on trumpet, with Melissa Aldana on tenor sax, Yasushi Nakamura on bass and, rounding out the ensemble, Jamison Ross on drums and percussion. Sponsored by The Doctors Company with additional support from Foresight Group. Media Sponsor: WKAR.
