Atlanta Jazz Festival

When: May 25-27 2013

Folks who associate jazz music with old guys in suits playing straight-ahead standards and music for cocktail hour may be a little surprised by the lineup of this year's annual Atlanta Jazz Festival. Now in its 36th year, the 2013 edition of the fest boasts a bevy of next-generation artists, including such acclaimed acts as José James, Dionne Farris, Russell Gunn, Julie Dexter, Gretchen Parlato, Alexandra Jackson, Meshell Ndegeocello, and many others — each one an artist who makes it his or her business to push the boundaries of the genre while respecting the classics.
