Blue Note Jazz Festival to Return to New York Next Month

Great news for jazz fans! The Blue Note Jazz Festival will return next month from June 10 – 30, with over 50 performances at venues throughout New York City.

While the inaugural festival celebrated the Blue Note’s legendary status, we hear the 2012 event will focus on the future.

The lineup (so far) includes jazz masters McCoy Tyner, Roy Haynes and Jack DeJohnette; international acts Buika, Béla Fleck, Michel Camilo and The Flamenco Soul Project directed by Javier Limon; vocal artists Kathleen Battle, Cassandra Wilson and Jimmy Scott; R&B/Funk/Soul legends Stephanie Mills, Bootsy Collins and The Commodores; and jazz-tinged mainstream and hip-hop artists Soulive, Yasiin Bey (a/k/a Mos Def), Questlove, Black Thought and Rhazel, The Soul Rebels and Groove Theory.

In addition to a special series of shows at the Blue Note Jazz Club, the 2012 Blue Note Jazz Festival will host performances at The Highline Ballroom, B.B. King Blues Club, Central Park Summerstage, The Apollo Theater, Henry Street Playhouse at the Abrons Arts Center, Brooklyn Bowl and Sullivan Hall.
