Telluride Jazz Celeb '09 Lineup


Jimmy Herring
Since 1977, Telluride's majestic perch has been the site of the Telluride Jazz Celebration, an annual cultural event produced by the Telluride Society for Jazz. Combining performances on outdoor stages during the day with theater and club shows at night, the TJC has become even more festive as it blends with the 26th annual edition of the colorful Telluride Balloon Rally .

Featured Artists at this year's TJC, which takes place June 5-7, 2009:

Benevento/Russo Duo
Bill Frisell Trio - "Guest of Honor" - featuring Eyvind Kang & Rudy Royston
Ozomatli - From L.A. to the World
Karl Denson's Tiny Universe
Jimmy Herring Band
Lizz Wright
Donald Harrison
Rebirth Brass Band
Christian Scott

The Telluride Jazz Celebration also has several educational components:

Telluride Student All-Star Jazz Ensemble -
This program is for the serious student and is directed by renowned jazz educator and performer Bob Montgomery. A national talent search is conducted for students age 13 and up via audition tapes. Students selected receive scholarships to this special week-long program culminating with a main stage performance at the festival. Audition information available on the web site.

Young Razzcals Jazz Project -
The Young Razzcals Jazz Project made its first appearance at the Jazz Celebration on the Stage in 1995. The kids were nine to twelve years old. They'll make their seventh appearance this June. The Razzcals are still young; eleven to sixteen. They have evolved into a group of prodigy jazz players. Butch Miles, drummer with the Count Basie Orchestra said, "These kids are the future of Jazz." Veteran jazz educator, and musician, Dave Adams, directs them.
