Photo Highlights from Jazz Connect 2014
2nd annual conference attracts hundreds of jazz musicians, execs, media, etc.
The second annual Jazz Connect conference, held Jan. 9-10 at the New York Hilton, in New York City, was a huge success, attracting more than 750 attendees from all segments of the jazz world: artists, journalists, media executives, etc. A total of 12 breakout sessions and four plenary sessions drew large crowds and an Ask the Experts networking session proved quite popular as well. Wrapping up the two-day event was "Blue Note at 75," a tribute to the venerable label, attended by Bruce Lundvall, former president of Blue Note.
