The 33rd annual Detroit Jazz Festival will feature a one-of-a-kind lineup of today’s greatest jazz performers. The artists at this year’s festival have been nominated for more than 200 and won more than 100 Grammy Awards, composed film scores and traveled the world to perform.
“This year, we wanted to focus on going back to traditional jazz roots. Bringing together these world-class jazz artists gives festival-goers the opportunity to experience jazz at its finest – a collaboration between artists with history, experience and a style all their own,” said Chris Collins, artistic director of the Detroit Jazz Festival. “Many of the artists joining us at the festival have worked together before and we’re reuniting them, as well as introducing unique first-time collaborations, to celebrate the culture of jazz and really show how jazz has made an impact in our region and across the nation.”
The 2012 headliners include:
• Sonny Rollins
• Wynton Marsalis
• Chick Corea and Gary Burton, with strings
• Wayne Shorter
• Pat Metheny
• And, 2012 Artist in Residence, Terence Blanchard
