    Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour: 55th Anniversary Celebration

    From day one, it was clear something special was happening at the Monterey County Fairgrounds. Founded in 1958 by San Francisco jazz radio broadcaster Jimmy Lyons, the first Monterey Jazz Festival featured artists like Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, Sonny Rollins, and Billie Holiday, to name just a few. Now the longest running jazz festival in the world takes to the road with a new generation of jazz luminaries. Dee Dee Bridgewater, Christian McBride, Ambrose Akinmusire, Chris Potter, Benny Green, and Lewis Nash carry forward the legacy of energy, talent, joy, and expression that have made Monterey a pilgrimage site for tried-and-true jazz fans for 55 years—and running.
