Dr. Lonnie Smith + Kurt Elling

April 27 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Presented by WDNA 88.9FM Public Radio, the 2018 Miami Downtown Jazz Festival features NEA Jazz Master Dr. Lonnie Smith and GRAMMY© Award winning vocalist Kurt Elling. 

Dr. Lonnie Smith is a master Hammond B-3 jazz organist and composer who, in a career spanning more than 50 years, has been featured on more than 70 jazz, blues, and rhythm-and-blues recordings. He is considered one of the premier purveyors of funk/soul jazz. He’ll be accompanied by Jonathan Kreisberg on guitar and Xavier Breaker on drums.

GRAMMY® winner Kurt Elling is among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists. His rich baritone spans four octaves and features both astonishing technical mastery and emotional depth. His repertoire includes original compositions and modern interpretations of standards, all of which are springboards for inspired improvisation, scatting, spoken word, and poetry.  He’ll be accompanied by Stu Mindeman on piano, Clark Sommers on bass, Jeff “Tain” Watts on drums, and John McLean on guitar.

The evening includes the winner of the Festival’s Jazz Piano Competition open to Miami-Dade, Broward, Monroe, and Palm Beach County musicians ages 11-25.
