“We are honored to continue this amazing tradition created 23 years and 32 parties ago, in 1995, by Joe Rothman & John McClure,” states Chris Lowden from his Las Vegas Porchlight Headquarters.
The Newport Beach Jazz Party features the top artists in jazz today. The ongoing series has featured hundreds of marquee performers including: Jack Jones, Tom Scott, Jeff Hamilton, John Clayton, Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, Shelly Berg, Tierney Sutton,Christian Jacob, Bill Cunliffe, Butch Miles, Terell Stafford, Akiko and Ken Peplowski….. Just to name a few.
The Jazz Party is a jazz festival combined with a looser, “party” atmosphere, and is in its 19th year and still going strong. Fans will see some of the greatest jazz musicians on the scene in intimate jam-session-style sets. Each set is curated by Artistic DirectorKen Peplowski and is a one-of-a-kind matching of players, akin to the legendary Jazz at the Phil sets of yore. Most performers appear in multiple configurations, leading their own sets as well as playing on other leaders’ sets. “The key word is fun, we’ll have music, small groups, big bands, vocalists, etc., throughout the four nights and three days,” says Ken Peplowski.
