Jazz impresario George Wein announced the lineup of events scheduled for the 2010 Carefusion Jazz Festival New York. The schedule is very similar in structure and style to previous JVC Jazz Festival – New York events. In addition to concerts by major headliners at large venues such as Carnegie Hall and Central Park’s Summerstage, there will be shows at clubs and smaller theaters throughout the city.

The special events range from a celebration of Herbie Hancock’s 70th Birthday with an all-star concert at Carnegie Hall to a salute to Bitches Brew, the seminal Miles Davis recording, at an outdoor concert in Prospect Park in Brooklyn.
