2018 INTERNATIONAL JAZZ DAY – ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA

We are honored and thrilled to be joining a roster of incredible jazz artists from across the globe for this year’s International Jazz Day Global Concert in St. Petersburg – April 30, 2018!

The All-Star Global Concert brings together a stellar lineup of international artists representing jazz and many other genres of music for a performance that spans styles, cultures and languages. In the spirit of International Jazz Day, each year’s All-Star Global Concert takes place in a landmark venue with rich historical significance both to the Global Host City and to the hosting nation.

The 2018 All-Star Global Concert will take place at St. Petersburg’s famed Mariinsky Theatre, home to the internationally acclaimed Mariinsky Ballet and one of the crown jewels of a city renowned for its UNESCO World Heritage sites. The 2018 Global Concert will be webcast on JazzDay.com and Facebook beginning at 19:00 GMT+3 / 4 pm US Eastern.

Long considered Russia’s cultural capital, St. Petersburg has played an important role in the popularization and development of jazz in Russia. The country’s jazz scene was born in 1927 in St. Petersburg with the appearance of the “First Concert Jazz Band” at the St. Petersburg State Capella, followed by the creation of the first jazz collective in 1929. Moreover, St. Petersburg is the only city in the country to have a Jazz Philharmonic Hall, founded in 1989.

The 2018 All-Star Global Concert will feature nearly three dozen acclaimed artists representing 14 countries. Herbie Hancock (USA) and Igor Butman (Russia) will serve as co-artistic directors, and John Beasley (USA) will serve as musical director. Additional confirmed artists include: Cyrille Aimée (France), Oleg Akkuratov (Russia), Till Brönner (Germany), Oleg Butman (Russia), Terri Lyne Carrington (USA), Joey DeFrancesco (USA), Fatoumata Diawara (Mali), Vadim Eilenkrig (Russia), Kurt Elling (USA), Antonio Faraò (Italy), James Genus (USA), Robert Glasper (USA), David Goloschyokin (Russia), Hassan Hakmoun (Morocco), Gilad Hekselman (Israel), Horacio Hernandez (Cuba), Taku Hirano (Japan), Anatoly Kroll (Russia), Gaoyang Li (China), Rudresh Mahanthappa (USA), The Manhattan Transfer (USA), Branford Marsalis (USA), James Morrison  (Australia), Moscow Jazz Orchestra (Russia), Makoto Ozone (Japan), Danilo Pérez (Panama), Dianne Reeves (USA), Lee Ritenour (USA), Luciana Souza (Brazil) and Ben Williams (USA), among others…

JANIS SIEGEL ~ PHILLIPINES & AUSTRALIA TOUR

A Note from Janis Siegel:
Dear Friends on the Other Side of the World,
I’ll be taking some time off from my much beloved harmony singing with TMT and will be traveling to the Phillipines and Australia in the coming weeks for some solo shows. Along wth my musical merry men, John di Martino and Boris Kozlov, I will be performing (both old favorites and new stuff!), making new friends and exploring these beautiful countries… I’ll also be doing some recording with flautist, Jane Rutter in Sydney. And I’d love to see YOU there!
Love,
Janis
