Palmdale Jazz and Wine Festival 2009: Jazz In California
The Palmdale Jazz and Wine Festival uncorks September 12th, 2009 at the Palmdale Amphitheater at Marie Kerr Park in Palmdale, California. The festival is set to run from 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm, and City of Palmdale Mayor Jim Ledford and Director of Parks & Recreation Russ Bird recently announced the entertainers who will perform.
The entertainment lineup opens with contemporary jazz guitarist Richard Smith, whose album, Soulidified (2003), spent 17 weeks at the top of the jazz charts.
With eight Top 5 Radio & Records singles, four of which hit #1, contemporary jazz saxophonist Euge Groove will perform beginning at 7:30 pm. Among his #1 hits are “Keep Coming Back,” “Slam Dunk” and “Rewind.”
The evening closes with a 9:00 pm performance by guitarist/singer/songwriter Norman Brown. Since the release of his critically acclaimed 2002 album, Just Chillin’ (2002) – which won a Grammy in the prestigious Best Pop Instrumental Category – this innovative and original guitarist has been front and center in the fast evolving fusion of pop, R&B and jazz that has captured the imagination of true music aficionados across the country and around the world.
The Festival will be announcing an additional performer and special guest MC in the next few weeks. The Palmdale Jazz and Wine Festival will feature a variety of outstanding local and California wineries. Guests will also be able to purchase a delicious selection of gourmet foods and micro brewed beers.
