JazzFest White Plains Announces 2022 Lineup for September
(Published: May 23, 2022)

Headliners include the Joey Alexander Trio; the Buster Williams Quartet "Something More"; Grace Kelly and Ragan Whiteside

Some of jazz's most exciting rising stars will perform at JazzFest White Plains, NY this fall.

This year's headliners include the Joey Alexander Trio; the Buster Williams Quartet "Something More"; Grace Kelly and Ragan Whiteside and Friends. The performances are scheduled between September 14 and September 18, and they will occur on downtown streets and in venues that include ArtsWestchester, Grace Episcopal Church and the White Plains Public Library.

Three-time Grammy Award-nominated pianist Joey Alexander is a pianist, composer, and bandleader. Alexander is considered one of the most emotive and compelling pianist-composers active on the scene today-including being the youngest artist ever nominated for a Grammy Award in a jazz category.

Grammy Award-winning bassist Buster Williams is a jazz legend who has collaborated with jazz giants such as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Art Blakey, Betty Carter, and Wynton Marsalis. The Something More Quartet includes Steve Wilson (saxophone), Lenny White (drums) and George Colligan (piano/keyboard).

An unequivocal musical prodigy, singer-saxophonist-songwriter-composer and band leader Grace Kelly has rocked the jazz world with sold-out concerts, 13 acclaimed albums and a resume that includes performing at the Hollywood Bowl and as part of the house band for "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" - all before reaching her mid-twenties.

Flutist, vocalist and songwriter Ragan Whiteside is currently taking the Contemporary Jazz world by storm. Whiteside, originally from Mt. Vernon, got her first taste of music in elementary school, where she played drums, piano and violin. It was a desire to be in the marching band that put the flute in her hand at age eight. With her unique style and soulful vibe, this triple-threat is bringing the flute back into mainstream focus.

Other notable artists scheduled to perform at the 2022 JazzFest White Plains are: Miki Hayama and Richie Goods, the Albert Rivera Quintet, the Carlos Jimenez Mambo Sextet, the G. Thomas Allen Quartet and more.

The eleventh-annual JazzFest White Plains is produced by ArtsWestchester, the City of White Plains and the White Plains Business Improvement District.

JazzFest White Plains is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. The performance by Buster Williams & Something More is made possible through the ArtsCONNECT program of Mid Atlantic Arts with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
