Since its founding in 2005, NYC Winter Jazzfest has cemented a reputation as a hotbed of cultural discovery, presenting new and exciting sounds and sights throughout New York City.

Praised by The New York Times, The New Yorker, NPR and countless others, the festival, year-after-year, continues to grow at a rapid pace, from its original one-day, single-location program to a 2017 master plan that will put 150+ groups comprised of 600+ artists onto 13 stages over five nights across Downtown Manhattan. In 2015, the festival was voted “#1 Jazz Festival in North America” by JazzTimes Magazine and has become a pivotal destination for arts leaders and cultural cognoscenti who visit the city early in the year.

The marathon that takes place during the festival’s Friday and Saturday nights is recognized as a crucial, unique New York City nightlife offering, giving audiences full access to participating venues from early evening to deep into the wee hours of the morning. Winter Jazzfest is an unparalleled experience for all consumers of jazz, experimental sound, and global creative impulses–from hardcore fans to novices. In 2016, the festival welcomed over 8500 audience members. In 2017, the festival anticipates an estimated 10,000 audience members from New York City, the United States, Europe, and beyond.

Conceived as an event to showcase the latest and most cutting edge of jazz acts during the annual Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) Conference, NYC Winter Jazzfest, founded by New York concert impresario Brice Rosenbloom, has grown to truly epic proportions. It has become the definitive all-inclusive jazz event that offers a “state of the union” for jazz and its many stylistic camps from hot swing to avant garde to modern straight-ahead, post-bop, jazz-funk, fusion, hypermodern through-composed music and jazz-inflected world music. From party bands to ambient electronic groups to the most advanced compositional approaches–through Winter Jazzfest, fans, critics, industry members and novice listeners gain an opportunity to discover all that jazz world has to offer.

In 2017, Winter Jazzfest seeks to directly address some of the bleak realities facing our nation. This year we stand firmly with #BLACKLIVESMATTER, as police brutality and gross abuse of power have become the new normal. Jazz music was created by African American and Creole musicians as a form of self-expression over 100 years ago. Since then, it has had a long history as protest music from the blues hollers of the delta to the bebop revolution to the overtly political works of Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Max Roach, Charles Mingus, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Archie Shepp, Nina Simone, David Murray, Don Byron and Wynton Marsalis, among many others. It continues to be a vital art form within the black community. In support of the struggles facing black Americans in New York City and worldwide, this year the festival gives voice to the struggle through musical expression. Various artists will offer their own takes on racial profiling, police brutality and the broken criminal justice system as part of this year’s festival.

The signature Winter Jazzfest Marathon is scheduled for Friday January 6th and Saturday January 7th. This two-night event straddles venues on the North and South ends of Greenwich Village, taking over four stages at The New School and six stages south of Washington Square Park including returning venues (le) poisson rouge, S.O.B.’s, Zinc Bar, The Bitter End, The Django at The Roxy Hotel, Bowery Ballroom and nublu. More than 150 groups will perform over the two nights, featuring over 500 musicians. Continuing a tradition of supporting like-minded jazz presenters Winter Jazzfest is pleased to again feature the unique programming vision Search & Restore and New York Hot Jazz Festival who will each curate their own stages during these two-nights.

Winter Jazzfest welcomes all Arts Presenter conference badge-holders to obtain a single discounted Two-Day Marathon Pass to the 2017 WINTER JAZZFEST (good for Jan 6 & 7) by emailing rsvp@winterjazzfest.com. Only 2017 APAP Conference attendees are able to RSVP for the discounted pass.
