As both a musician and producer, Terrace Martin’s “fusion of elements from hip-hop, soul, and jazz created his own signature sound and landed him in the studio with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Lalah Hathaway and Snoop Dogg.” (Ebony)
Julian Lage feat. Scott Colley & Kenny Wollesen
After playing on stage with Carlos Santana at the age of 8, Julian Lage transitioned “from child prodigy and documentary film subject to a fine career in jazz.” (AllMusic) His 2016 release Arclight "reveals another facet of Lage's burgeoning artistry, finding him moving beyond the acoustic asceticism that defined his earliest recordings and into a more expansive mode of expression." (All About Jazz)
Players include Scott Colley (bass), Julian Lage (guitar), and Kenny Wollesen (drums).
Brooklyn’s own Los Hacheros, modern-day torchbearers of the Golden Age of Latin music, bring a “dedication to authenticity is masterfully executed with a serious dose of sabor.” (NPR Music)

Known for her decades of work as a back-up singer with the likes of Chaka Khan, The Rolling Stones, and Luther Vandross (and her related role in the documentary 20 Feet from Stardom), Lisa Fischer takes center stage at BRIC JazzFest and “embodies a vulnerability and tenderness that feels at once fragile and indestructible.” (Broadway World)
Yosvany Terry Quintet
Since arriving in NYC in 1999, the Cuban saxophonist, percussionist, and composer Yosvany Terry “has helped redefine Latin Jazz as a complex new idiom.” (The New York Times).
Marc Cary & Maurice "Mobetta" Brown
Marc Cary, a post bop jazz pianist based out of New York City, and Grammy award winning trumpet virtuoso/super-producer Maurice "Mobetta" Brown team up to push the edge of jazz to new creative heights.
Marc Ribot Trio
Marc Ribot's experimental trio with Henry Grimes and Chad Taylor “draws inspiration from Albert Ayler and late-period Coltrane, and while it excels at ecstatic free jazz, it can also stomp the blues and break your heart with a ballad.” (Time Out New York)
Players include Henry Grimes (bass), Marc Ribot (guitar), and Chad Taylor (drums).
Originally from Tokyo, jazz pianist and vocalist Etsuko Tajima is known for her dexterity and rhythmic virtuosity, which are on display in her first album, released this year: Infinite Possibilities.
