Featuring

Dianne Reeves

Portrait of a smiling person with bronze skin, black curly hair, red lipstick, dangling green earrings, and a sunshine yellow top, embroidered at the neckline with concentric circles of various colors.

Five-time Grammy Award winner and jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves brings a breathtaking virtuosity, improvisational prowess, and unique jazz and R&B stylings to her performances. Reeves received the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Performance for three consecutive recordings and won the Best Jazz Vocal Grammy for her feature in the soundtrack of George Clooney’s six-time Academy Award nominated film Good Night, and Good Luck. The first Creative Chair for Jazz for the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the first vocalist to ever perform at the famed Walt Disney Concert Hall, in 2018 Reeves was designated a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts—the highest honor the United States bestows on jazz artists.

Lakecia Benjamin

Portrait of a dark-skinned person with black curly hair pulled back, wearing a silver and blue top and silver pants, holding a saxophone, and whose sunglasses seem to reflect the bright blue background.

Voted the 2020 DownBeat Critics Poll Rising Star Alto Saxophonist and Up and Coming Artist of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association, charismatic and dynamic saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin fuses traditional conceptions of jazz, hip hop, and soul. With her electric presence and fiery sax work, Benjamin has shared stages with several legendary artists, including Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, and The Roots.

Harold López-Nussa

A person with short thick curly hair and beard, wearing a black short-sleeved collared shirt and dark jeans, with an analog watch and tattoos on his left arm, looks at the camera while leaning against the arched brick wall of the interior of a tunnel.

Winner of the 2005 Montreux Jazz Piano Competition, composer and pianist Harold López-Nussa has captivated audiences across the world with his thrilling performances that reflect the full range and richness of the Cuban musical tradition, with its distinctive combination of folkloric, popular, and classical elements—as well as its embrace of improvisation.

The Dale Melton Trio

The Dale Melton Trio is a tasty sonic and rhythmic stew of New Orleans funk and soulful New York jazz blended with early rock, blues, and bossa nova—creating a truly unique sound with Melton’s one-of-a-kind Hammond organ style, punch-the-rhythm piano, and "it's never the same twice" delivery. Their style is reminiscent of Dr. John, Mose Allison, Fats Waller, Taj Mahal, Boz Skaggs, Lyle Lovett, and Randy Newman.

High and Mighty Brass Band

Eight musicians stand and pose for a photo, holding various instruments, including electric guitar, tuba, trombone, trumpet, drum, and tambourine.

There’s a reason legendary groups like Galactic, Eli “Paperboy” Reed, and Lake Street Dive have collaborated with New York City’s favorite brass band High and Mighty Brass Band since drummer Evan Howard started the band back in 2009. This rotating cast has toured all over the world including major performances at Bonnaroo, the US Open, Governors Ball Music Festival, and Sonidos Liquidos. They entertain crowds with both their original music and fresh takes on current and classic cover songs.
