Event Description

Outpost Performance Space presents a New Mexico Jazz Festival Spring event, the Monterey Jazz Festival 55th Anniversary Celebration on Tour! The longest consecutively running jazz festival in the world, MJF was the dream of founder Jimmy Lyons which became a reality in 1958 when the first festival featured artists like Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, Art Farmer, Billie Holiday. This 55th Anniversary Tour reflects Monterey’s “traditional-untraditionalist” attitude, jazz-with-a-purpose, exuberance and joyful fun that continues to be the hallmark of the festival to this day. The all star line-up features vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater, bassist Christian McBride, pianist Benny Green, drummer Lewis Nash, saxophonist Chris Potter and trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire.
