2024 NYC Winter Jazzfest

Vibrant, diverse, and wild, the NYC jazz scene has thrived for decades and that history is encapsulated in the NYC Winter Jazzfest. Running January 10 to the 18th at venues across NYC, the festival is now in its 20th season.

“Yes, it’s our 20th season,” says founder and producer Brice Rosenbloom. “We began in 2005 at the Knitting Factory on Leonard St., with the mission of highlighting music that deserved wider attention while the APAP conference was in town, and to a large degree that mission remains. But over the years that mission grew, to focus on artists with meaningful messages, in the desire to serve as a beacon for racial and gender justice, action on climate change, migration, mass incarceration and other pressing issues that affect so many of us.”

Returning performers include Marc Ribot, Jason Moran, Burnt Sugar, The Arkestra Chamber, Nduduzo Makhathini, Meg Okura, Jason Lindner, Aaron Parks, and Mary Halvorson.

On January 11 is a duo set at Dizzy’s with the great Joe Lovano (preceded by a intimate chat at Jazz Congress on the “Universality of Jazz”), and artist-in-residence Shabaka will take part in both Marathon nights in ensembles including Jason Moran, Saul Williams, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and more.

On January 17th is Celebrating Ryuichi Sakamoto, a tribute to the legendary performer on what would have been his 72nd birthday. The Sakamoto Tribute Ensemble (led by violinist Meg Okura and cellist Rubin Kodheli) will perform Sakamoto’s works, alongside special guests speaking at the performance.

Along with an extensive slate of performers are the Jazz Talks, panel discussions that reflect on jazz history and the music industry.
