Jazz Artists on the Greens will be celebrating its Sweet 16 come March 17.
One of the true jazz events in the Caribbean, JAOTG will celebrate the future of Caribbean jazz with the Greens' debut of two young upcoming musicians — pianist Adan Hagley and the J9Quartet featuring Jeanine Ruiz.
The event will also revel in the present with the première performance at the festival of Tropical Smooth Jazz star Elan Trotman of Barbados with his band Tropicality, while it looks back at the career of “our own” Caribbean Jazz pioneer, the late Ralph MacDonald with an all-star celebration of his musical legacy, “JAM ON THE GROOVE: A Tribute to Ralph MacDonald” starring Tony Paul and the JAOTG All Stars.
JAOTG Director Nigel Campbell and Tony Paul stopped by The Lounge to talk about this year's event and the MacDonald tribute.
