Featured Website: Pittsburgh JazzLive
The Pittsburgh JazzLive International project was born out of a commitment to showcase, promote, and nurture jazz musicians, and the incredibly rich legacy that has made Pittsburgh known worldwide as a hotbed for this music. The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust started the weekly series, JazzLive in 2003, and has grown to become one of the biggest supporters of local jazz musicians, as well as, a presenter of jazz legends, and the lens for what the future holds in jazz. I consider myself to be one of the luckiest people I know because I get the opportunity to meet and listen to so many talented musicians, and to be a part of the international circle of friends that love this music.
Soulive...Gretchen Parlato...Sean Jones....Bobby Sanabria...Chelsea Baratz...Gregory Porter...all of these musicians have a unique voice and are taking jazz music to different audiences. Roger Humphries is a legend, has been an integral part of so many important recordings with McCoy Tyner, Ray Charles and many more. He is truly a master, and we are incredibly lucky that he still makes his home in Pittsburgh!
We are thrilled to present this festival in cooperation with The Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival!
Join us in Pittsburgh for an incredible weekend... live music, great people, incredible city.
