NYC Winter Jazz Fest Recap

It was a fantastic weekend for live Jazz in New York City. On January 7th and 8th, the Boom Collective presented the NYC Winter Jazzfest. Among the many musicians performing were Evans artists Mark Guiliana, Dafnis Prieto, Eric Kalb and Ari Hoenig.

Each put on fine performances with their own percussive flavor. Mark Guiliana took home award for most sets performed throughout the festival, playing with Nguyen Le, Donny McCaslin Trio and Now vs. Now over the course of both nights.

Check out some photos from the festival below:

The festival was sold soon after starting, with throngs of musicians and music enthusiasts piling into various venues in Greenwich Village. With Jazz music coming from both sides of the street, around the corner and down the block, there was something for everyone.
