From JAZZCORNER: “TD James Moody Jazz Festival”



Hear the best in jazz, presented with that extra-special touch of sophistication in NJPAC’s elegant Prudential Hall – it’s all part of the prestigious TD James Moody Jazz Festival, celebrating its seventh year from November 4-18!

Here are just a few of the many highlights:

Dianne Reeves and Gregory Porter, two of the greatest voices in jazz today in one unforgettable night …

Congas y Canto: An Evening of Latin Jazz, featuring superstars Sheila E., Eddie Palmieri, Tito Rojas and the Christian McBride Big Band …

Marcus Miller with special guest David Sanborn and the extraordinary vocals of Lalah Hathaway.

NJPAC’s Victoria Theater offers an intimate setting for the big sound of the Count Basie Orchestra, with the talents of Kurt Elling, Jon Faddis, Stefon Harris and Catherine Russell. Also at “The Vic,” drummer Antonio Sánchez, composer of the score to Birdman, provides the live accompaniment for a unique screening of that Oscar-winning film.
