Schedule for 26th Cape May Jazz Festival announced

Although Cape May, N.J. and New Orleans are some 1300 miles apart, the two cities will come together for the 26th Cape May Jazz Festival. Featuring a variety of events such as a jazz dinner, special workshops and a memorial service for the late Brian Trainor, the festival will run from Nov. 10 to 12.

Nearly 30 artists will perform at the festival, beginning with the New Orleans All-Star Jazz Band featuring Dr. Michael White (pictured) on clarinet, Christian Scott on trumpet and Juanita Brooks on vocals. Other notable artists include Jeanie Bryon, daughter of Dizzy Gillespie; the Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble, Philadelphia’s Afro-original-beats band; the Louis Armstrong Summer Jazz Masters; and trumpeter Chuck Mangoine.
