Its influence on the development of a worldwide jazz audience is unparalleled, and its enduring prestige is unquestioned. Now celebrating its 60th Anniversary season with a world-wide tour, the Newport Jazz Festival remains as vibrant as ever.  Israeli clarinetist, saxophonist, and prolific bandleader Anat Cohen leads this all-star touring ensemble, which also features renowned vocalist Karrin Allyson; five-time GRAMMY®-winning trumpeter Randy Brecker; and versatile guitarist Mark Whitfield, accompanied by the A-list rhythm section of pianist Peter Martin, drummer Clarence Penn and bassist Larry Grenadier. This handpicked multi-generational ensemble represents the festival’s rich heritage in a performance that will span the ages, from Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Miles Davis to Latin, Brazilian, fusion, and so much more!
