Update Wednesday April 6th 2016 :Jazz artistKenzaburo Ishihara will not be performing on the International Stage due to prior engagement, but we will keep you posted on who the replacement will be.

The 39th Annual Atlanta Jazzfest lineup has been announced and it does not fall short of the genre’s who’s who. From the soulful groove of Gregory Porter, the hip-hop inspired brass of Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Dungeon Family alum JOI, and the sensuous stylings of Brazilian songstress Eliane Elias, we’ve got a wide variety of jazz flavors on three stages.
