San Jose Jazz Winter Fest

Are you one of the hundred thousand people that love the annual San Jose Fazz Fest? Well, then I have some great news. Starting this year there will be a Winter Jazz Fest in addition to the epic summer event. This is going to happen across the burgeoning San Pedro Square area, including many of my favorite Downtown eateries and the Theater on San Pedro Square. Our friends at Silicon Valley Lofts & Condos did a great job of summarizing the event, so check out their post below for all the details!

Concerts will be held at the intimate Theater on San Pedro Square, and will feature established musicians as well as some up-and-comers. Highlights of the festival include a collaboration between young jazz artists Amrose Akinmusire and Gerald Clayton; vocalist Jamie Davis; saxophone prodigy Grace Kelly; Bay Area favorites The Blues All Stars with J.C. Smith, Chris Cain & Maxx Cabello, Jr.; and global fusion group Rupa & the April Fishes.

Other exciting events include dance parties and a “Club Crawl”. The Blues Dance Party will feature Summer Fest favorite Legally Blue, and the Salsa Dance Party will feature the Latin Salsa Big Band sounds of the Pacific Mambo Orchestra. Both parties will be held at the new local favorite San Pedro Square Market. The Club Crawl will have performances by local jazz groups at favorite downtown San Jose bars and restaurants in San Pedro Square including 71 Saint PeterLa PiƱataThe MmoonO’Flaherty’s Irish Pub, and the Satori Tea Company.
