The annual year-ending Nublu Jazz Fest strikes again! As per tradition, it will be two weeks filled with performances by an array of stellar musicians, performers and bands. Despite having expanded overseas in recent years to São Paulo and Istanbul, the roots remain on NYC’s Avenue C in the East Village, and this time includes Nublu’s old AND new locations. Walking into an intimate, funky location and having your head blown off by some seriously BAD cats is an old New York tradition Nublu is proud to uphold.
This year’s lineup features such luminaries as Sun Ra’s Arkestra, Jose James, David Murray, Matt Parker, Hess Is More, Justin Brown’s Nyeusi, Marc Cary, Maurice Brown, Ben Perowsky, Dave Harrington, Cristina Morrison, Karriem Riggins, Marcus Gilmore, Forró In The Dark and many others. The DJs will include O.BEE, the Almond Brothers, Greg Caz, Alex From Tokyo, Y-Gun, Dodo, Mickey Perez and a bunch more.
