12th Annual Provincetown Jazz Festival
(Published: January 14, 2016)

The 12th Annual, 2016 Provincetown Jazz Festival will be held on August 11, 7:00pm at The Crown & Anchor in Provincetown and on August 15, 7:00pm & 9:00pm at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, both located on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

For 11 years the Provincetown Jazz Festival has presented jazz musicians from the United States, Canada, South America, United Kingdom, Europe, and New Zealand. This year we will feature four jazz musicians making their Provincetown Jazz Festival debut:

Billy Stritch sings the Mel Tormé Songbook, a tribute to one of the legendary jazz singers of all time and features some his greatest arrangements. Billy is one of the premier singer-pianists on the New York and national jazz and cabaret scene and accompanies & arranges for Liza Minnelli, Linda Lavin, Marilyn Maye, and many others. He will be accompanied by Ron Ormsby on bass and Bart Weisman on drums.

Evan Christopher has created a highly personal brand of "contemporary early-jazz" that strives to extend the legacy of the New Orleans clarinet style. Charismatic and versatile, Christopher was drawn to New Orleans from his native California in 1994 by the rich musical landscape in the birthplace of Jazz. He tours extensively in the United States and Europe and has performed at the Newport Jazz Festival. Appearing with Evan will be Fred Boyle on piano, Nicki Parrott on bass and Bart Weisman on drums.

Nicki Parrott is a world renowned double bassist & jazz vocalist and was voted by Japan's Swing Journal to be the Best Jazz Vocalist in 2007 & 2008. Born in Australia, Nicki relocated to New York and was bassist & vocalist for the legendary Les Paul for over 10 years. She performs regularly at most of the world's top jazz festivals and venues.

Scott Avidon is a jazz sax player, composer and educator from New Jersey and he will be accompanied by Fabiano de Castro from Brazil on piano, Ron Ormsby on bass and Bart Weisman on drums.
