Hot fun in the summertime is what the 30th San Jose Jazz Summer Fest was all about. With stages titled Swing, Blues / Big Easy, Salsa, Jazz Beyond and Gospel, you get a sense of what sounds were in the air. The festival was held August 9th through the 11th in beautiful downtown San Jose, California. From high school bands to rising stars like Aneesa Strings and Amy D., mix in jazz talents Dianne Reeves, Gregory Porter, Sons of Kemet, Fred Hersch, Marquis Hill, Charlie Hunter, Ivan Lins, Ray Obiedo, Emmet Cohen, Christoph Irniger, Shamarr Allen, Elio Villafranca, Carl Allen, Jeremy Pelt and Monty Alexander, and it adds up to a great weekend of music. From the music to the food vendors, it was truly another fine job by San Jose Jazz!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
