Are you a fan of jazz? Then don't miss the San Jose Jazz Fest this February and March. Today's most successful artists take the stage including Regina Carter, J.C. Smith Blues Guitar Slingers, Nicholas Payton Trio, and Marquis Hill Blacktet. Hear the sweet sounds of blues, swing, Latin music, New Orleans, and so much more in the best clubs and concert halls in Silicon Valley.
There are several marquee performances to keep an eye out for. Catch the sounds of Delfeayo and Ellis Marsalis Quartet at Café Stritch on March 8 for the swinging show "The Last Southern Gentlemen." Another world-class highlight is John Scofield and the Grammy-winning Joe Lovano Quartet at Schultz Cultural Arts Hall in Palo Alto on February 27. Silicon Valley's most talented students will also be taking part in this jazz extravaganza. San Jose Jazz High School All Stars and the San Jose State University Jazz Combo will both be playing shows.
Along with live concerts, there will be a Swing Dance Party on Friday, March 4, and a Salsa Dance Party on Saturday, March 5. Tickets are on sale now, so make sure to get them in advance before the most popular evenings sell out. Taking place at venues across Downtown San Jose and Palo Alto, our Santa Clara hotel puts you within easy reach of all the shows. Book your accommodations for the jazz fest at Crestview Hotel.
