"A little magic, a little mystery and a whole lot of great music."
- Christian McBride, NJPAC Jazz Advisor
Hear the best in jazz, presented with that extra-special touch of sophistication in NJPAC’s elegant Prudential Hall – it’s all part of the prestigious TD James Moody Jazz Festival, always an enticing and eclectic celebration of America’s original music.
The festival, now in its eighth year, presents dozens of free and ticketed events, including a triple bill of Steps Ahead, Michael Franks and Spyro Gyra and starry salutes to the music of Erroll Garner and Nat King Cole. Experience the brilliance of guitarist Lee Ritenour and his special guests, and the incomparable Houston Person over brunch at Dorthaan’s Place. As always, the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition closes this amazing festival.
