Monterey Jazz Festival On Tour

11:01 AM Wednesday 12/2/09 | |

That’s right. The world-famous Monterey Jazz Festival may be coming to your town. Details after the jump.

The Monterey Jazz Festival On Tour is a six week, 34 date outing starring the MJF/52 All-Stars featuring Grammy-nominated and NEA Jazz master Kenny Barron on piano, Grammy-nominated violinist Regina Carter; Grammy-winning guitarist Russell Malone, Grammy-nominated vocalist Kurt Elling, bassist Kiyoshi Kitagawa and Grammy-nominated drummer Johnathan Blake. That’s a lot of talent on one stage playing for you.

And if you’re wondering what the “52” refers to, this year marked the 52nd Monterey Jazz Festival.

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to see this tour. The first phase of the run begins with a two-nighter – Feb. 5 & 6 – in Storrs at the University of Connecticut’s Jorgensen Auditorium. From there the tour moves to Worcester, Mass., for a Feb. 8 date at Mechanics Hall followed by Portsmouth, N.H., on Feb. 10 at the Music Hall.

The first phase also includes stops in Boston (Feb. 11), Greenvale, N.Y. (Feb. 13), University Park, Pa. (Feb. 16), Richmond, Va. (Feb. 23), Atlanta (Feb. 27) and Birmingham (Feb. 28).

The second phase launches in Bellingham, Wash., April 14 at Mount Baker Theatre followed by Olympia, Wash., at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts April 15 and Napa, Calif., at the Napa Valley Opera House April 17. Other cites include San Diego (April 21), Los Angeles (April 22) and Tucson (April 27). Last stop on the schedule is Detroit May 1.

Back in 1966 the Monterey Jazz Festival began combining musicians under the “Monterey All-Stars” label. Since then, at least 17 All-Star bands have graced the festival’s stage with past lineups including such jazz notables as Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Brown, Max Roach, Hank Jones and Milt Jackson.
