Dance to a World of Music at the Miami Beach Jazz Festival

Music Unites at Miami Beach Jazz Festival



January 25-30th



Locations Vary





The universal language of music takes center stage at each show during this fast-growing celebration of jazz. Now only in its third year, the Miami Beach Jazz Festival welcomes diverse voices from across the globe to grace South Florida with their indelible rhythms. Hailing nations as distant as Australia, France, Israel, and Brazil, all these visionaries need to communicate is their instrument of choice, and an audience to watch in wonder as their Miami concerts unfold.


Get Down to "A World of Jazz"

All but one festival event is FREE and open to the public. They include:


James Morrison Trio

January 25th, 11am-1pm

Wertheim Performing Arts Center

10910 SW 17th Street

Though best known for this mastery of the trumpet, you would be hard-pressed to find an instrument Mr. Morrison is not adept at playing. The Australian composer performed at the Sydney 2000 Olympics, conducted the world's largest orchestra in 2013, and will share the stage with two trusted accompaniments here in Miami.


Philippe Leoge

January 28th, 7pm

4104 Ponce de Leon Blvd

Coral Gables, FL 33146

Fall under the spell of this legendary French pianist during his FREE concert in Coral Gables, 20 minutes from our hotel.


MBJ 2016

January 30th, 6pm

Olympia Theater

174 E. Flagler Street

The festival's main event promises to be a sensational night of world rhythms, featuring infectious Baltic drumming from "Sinkope," The Joe Carter Trio playing Brazilian-inspired "Samba Jazz," Latin/Austrian/American beats from Markus Gottschlich and Friends, and Isreal's legendary Daniel Zamir Quartet. Tickets range from $45-$150, available here.
