during the Arts Presenters (APAP) conference.  Similar to past years the
festival will provide an opportunity for artists to showcase in front
of presenters, promoters, talent buyers, educators, musicians and avid
fans. Over 5000 arts professionals will be in New York City for the

January 7-11.  As there will be hundreds of showcases scheduled
throughout the weekend around the city both at the Hilton Hotel and in
alternative venues, Winter Jazzfest offers APAP conference attendees,
and the general public, the opportunity to experience the best of
today’s new live jazz and experimental music in club venue settings. 
Once famed as the focal point of New York City’s rich jazz and live
music scene, Bleecker Street and the Village provide for an ideal
festival experience with jazz and experimental music groups performing
all night at five of the neighborhood’s esteemed venues within close
proximity of each other. On this night the 2011 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST will
continue to redeem the rich jazz heritage of the Village and again will
bring jazz fans back to Bleecker Street.  The 2011 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST
includes over 60 of today’s most interesting jazz groups from New York,
Brooklyn, Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia, France, Holland, Israel,
Germany, Cape Verde, Mali, Cuba, Argentina, England and more.
