These artists are no strangers to the Detroit Jazz community as they represent a diverse blend of generations, musical backgrounds and styles. This mix of legendary Detroit luminaries and rising stars will be on stage performing original works reflecting the mentor-disciple relationships that are an integral part the Detroit Jazz Festival’s tradition.

Each October, as part of an ongoing cultural exchange, the Detroit Jazz Festival assembles an all-star ensemble to perform Detroit based Jazz at the Yokohama Jazz Festival and at various Jazz clubs in Japan.  This cultural exchange brings musicians together from both countries.

In 2018 Detroit Jazz Festival’s audience will experience the traditional swing style of Grand Prix winners: The Asaba Trio. Yokohama is one of Japan’s most important Jazz cities and its Jazz Promenade is one of the country’s largest Jazz festivals. Sound familiar? The city of Detroit and our Jazz Festival share the same reputation!
