The signature Winter Jazzfest Marathon is scheduled for Friday January 6th and Saturday January 7th. This two-night event straddles multiple venues on the North and South ends of Greenwich Village. More than 130 groups will perform over the two nights, featuring over 600 musicians. Continuing a tradition of supporting like-minded jazz presenters, Winter Jazzfest is pleased to again feature the unique programming vision Search & Restore, Revive Music and New York Hot Jazz Festival.
In 2017, Korean band Blackstring, a Korean contemporary improvisational music group led by a multi-award-winning composer and classically trained Geomungo (Korean zither) virtuoso, Yoon-Jeong Heo, participates in the Winter Jazzfest, performing at the Bowery Electric.
