Oscar Peterson Intl Jazz Festival – Jimmy Greene
February 16 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST$55 - $100
As the world’s first (and only!) jazz festival bearing the name of Canada’s greatest jazz artist, the Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival will honour and celebrate his legacy of excellence.
The opening night concert International All-Star Jazz at the Philharmonic features multiple GRAMMY Award winners Cécile McLorin Salvant, Jon Faddis, Jimmy Greene, Michael Dease, Benny Green, Christian McBride, and Kenny Washington.
“Two-time Grammy nominee, and superb tenor saxophonist Jimmy Greene plays with a comprehensive knowledge of the history of the music, but his concept and sound are all his own. He is also an important and prolific composer as attested to by his last two recordings: Beautiful Life, and Flowers, Beautiful Life, Vol. 2 (Mack Avenue Records), both dedicated to the memory of his sweet daughter Ana Grace Marquez-Greene.”
-Renee Rosnes, Artistic Director
