The 15th annual Winter Jazzfest will take place Jan. 4-12, 2019 in New York City, according to an announcement yesterday by the organizers. In a statement, they wrote, “The response to our 2018 festival was extraordinary, and in our landmark 15th year we will stay the course, offering standalone concerts, a showcase to coincide with the annual APAP conference, and other events leading up to our epic two-night marathon—Friday, January 11 and Saturday, January 12.”

In the announcement, the Jazzfest organizers also stated, “We will also again feature an inspiring artist-in-residence: this time the great singer-songwriter, bassist, producer and genre-defying musical visionary Meshell Ndegeocello, who will appear as a leader and collaborator in various projects to be announced. Ndegeocello will also participate in at least one of our Winter Jazzfest Talks, a free afternoon series of panel discussions we launched in 2017 and look forward to continuing in 2019.”
