NJMEA All-State Jazz Band
TD James Moody Jazz Festival
Discover the next generation of jazz artists at this annual concert, which brings together some of NJ’s very best young jazz musicians for a dynamic group performance.
This year, the All-State ensemble will be joined by special guest Javon Jackson, an acclaimed jazz tenor saxophonist who first rose to international prominence as a member of legendary drummer Art Blakey’s group, the Jazz Messengers. A member of the first generation of musicians to combine tradition with neo-jazz, Jackson’s solo work has since blended hard bop with soul, funk and R&B influences.
This annual event is presented by NJPAC’s Arts Education Department and the New Jersey Music Educators Association.
NICO Kitchen + Bar will be open for this performance, make reservations by clicking the button below.
