The Miami Jazz Fest™ is Jazz, pure Jazz! Scheduled for November 17th and 18th at the Klipsch Amphitheater at Bayfront Park adjacent to Biscayne Bay in Downtown Miami, the event promises to be a line-up of quality Jazz performances that will capture the excitement of fans throughout South Florida and beyond.

"There are many music festivals that call themselves 'Jazz' events, but are all too often watered down with other types of music" says event founder and producer, Carmen J. Cartiglia. “The Miami Jazz Fest™ will be going back to the basics and will bring in some exceptional true jazz artists from around the world.”

Saturday night, November 17th will be dedicated to the exotic performances of Brazilian Jazz artists.  It will feature a star studded line up of international musicians to introduce you to the unique and varied styles of Brazilian Jazz.

Then Sunday’s focus, November 18th, including Jazz great Monty Alexander, will be an all-day event that will bring in some swinging, no nonsense, straight ahead Jazz performances by world renowned musicians from across the globe. This will be a REAL Jazz Festival with the very best musicians the Jazz world has to offer coming together to create an experience not to be missed!

In addition to Monty Alexander performing on Sunday night, among the artists currently scheduled to perform are: Saturday night, dedicated to the sound of Jazz in Brazil, Trio De Paz, Maucha Adnet, Patty Ascher, Antonio Adolfo, and Joe Carter; and the line up on Sunday includes Mike DiRubbo, Don Friedman, Bucky Pizzarelli, Jack Wilkins, Jesse Jones, Warren Chaisson and Giacomo Gates.

"We're going 'Old School' for this event and bringing the people of Miami a true Jazz event that they can be proud of!"  Mr. Cartiglia goes on to say that "this is the start of an annual Jazz festival that will grow with each year and establish Miami as the home for 'True Jazz' and the revival Jazz is enjoying."
