Info: CareFusion, a leading global medical device company, and festival producer George Wein announced the schedule for the CareFusion Jazz Festival New York, which takes over the city June 17 � 26 with 45 concerts at 20 venues.
"I am grateful that CareFusion came forward to re-ignite the tradition of New York's annual jazz festival in June. With more than 1,000 jazz events taking place throughout New York every month, it's an exciting challenge to program a 10-night festival, said Mr. Wein, CEO of New Festival Productions, LLC. "We booked the festival using the underlying theme of "accentuate the positive," which includes partnering with some of the city's hottest venues from Manhattan to Queens, from Brooklyn to the Bronx. Together, we have booked a stellar festival filled with great music for all tastes and at all prices."
As in past years, some of the great legends of jazz will make their only major New York appearances. At Carnegie Hall, the CareFusion Jazz Festival New York presents Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette on June 17; An Evening with Chris Botti, June 19; The Genius of Jo�o Gilberto, June 22; and Herbie Hancock, Seven Decades: The Birthday Celebration featuring the birthday honoree himself, Herbie Hancock, plus Terence Blanchard, Bill Cosby, Joe Lovano, Wayne Shorter and others, June 24.
For the free concert of a lifetime, head to Central Park SummerStage on June 23 for dynamic sets starring the McCoy Tyner Quartet featuring Ravi Coltrane, Esperanza Spalding and Francisco Mela plus the Stanley Clarke Band featuring Hiromi.
The festival continues with the best in jazz at concert halls, clubs, parks, museums and libraries across the city.
"The CareFusion Jazz Festival Series uses jazz to shine a light on patient safety and those working to improve health care," said David Schlotterbeck, chairman and CEO of CareFusion. "We are especially excited to bring back the New York Jazz Festival this year and support and preserve the arts in New York City and the surrounding communities."
The complete schedule of the CareFusion Jazz Festival New York, which George Wein says "speaks for itself," is below. Tickets for concerts at Carnegie Hall and The Town Hall go on sale Monday, March 22.
