For the first time in its history, the entire Jazz em Agosto programme was organised around a single musician. And the choice could hardly fall on a more striking name—both for the history of the festival and for the fundamental course of music he helped shape in the last decades: John Zorn, an artist with a highly personal style and whose activity is as prolific as it is varied. His music is so essential as a soundtrack for this time that he has become an icon of New York's artistic avant-garde, not only as a creator but also as an explorer of new territories and as someone who draws together a community that revolves around his boundless creativity.

This installment features photos from the concert series spanning July 27 to August 5 and included Marc Ribot, Mary Halvorson, Thurston Moore, Dave Douglas, Kris Davis, Craig Taborn, Ikue Mori, Trevor Dunn, and many others who appear regularly in Zorn's countless projects.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
