JANUARY=JAZZFEST IN NYC
12/15/17

At January’s Winter Jazzfest in New York, the largest collection of jazz performances concentrated into a single week in the country, Blue Note’s Jose James will kick off his Bill Withers tribute tour, nearly two dozen musicians will pay tribute to the late pianist Gerri Allen and Ravi Coltrane will oversee a salute to his mother, Alice Coltrane.

Held 1/10-17 at more than a dozen locations in lower Manhattan, the event will feature performances from artists whose names are popping up on multiple Top 10 lists for their 2017 albums: Nicole Mitchell, Vijay Iyer, Rudresh Mahanthappa Indo-Pak Coalition, Matt Wilson's Honey & Salt and Charnett Moffett among them.

Unique events of note include The Invisible Man, An Orchestral Tribute to Dr. Dre at Bowery Ballroom on 1/13; the Sun Ra Arkestra performing the score to the film Space Is The Place at the New School Tishman Auditorium on 1/13; and Gilles Peterson hosting a British Jazz Showcase on 1/10 with The Comet is Coming, Oscar Jerome and Yazz Ahmed.

Terri Lyne Carrington will lead the Gerri Allen tribute on 1/15 with Esperanza Spalding, Jack DeJohnette, Jaimeo Brown, Jeff Tain Watts and Iyer among the participants. James shares the bill on 1/11 at (le) poisson rouge with My Brightest Diamond, Knower and the No BS! Brass Band.

Flutist Nicole Mitchell (pictured) will be the busiest of all the musicians as she is performing four times with four different bands: Art and Anthem For Gwendolyn Brooks with Jason Moran on 1/12 at New School Tishman Auditorium; with her trio at Subculture on 1/13; Mandorla Awakening II: Emerging Worlds on 1/16 at (le) poisson rouge; and Maroon Cloud on 1/17 at (le) poisson rouge.
