Music Unites at Miami Beach Jazz Festival
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.
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.
January 30th, 6pm

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.
