We greatly look forward to welcoming back patrons with 10 stages of exciting outdoor and indoor concerts.”

Artistic Director Bruce Labadie, one of the event’s founders, programs the artists for SJZ Summer Fest with the help of locally based co-curators.

Labadie comments, “Attendees of SJZ Summer Fest 2022 can expect a wide variety of outstanding artists across numerous genres. We’re working closely with the city to ensure a safe environment for all while many of today’s best acts perform throughout downtown. Live concerts will be centered around Plaza de César Chavez Park with our favorite vendors offering delicious foods and beverages, and creative crafts. With four outdoor stages and seven indoor stages, there is excellent programming that will appeal to an array of music fans.”

San Jose Jazz brings the city of San Jose back to life through cultural collaborations with many longstanding partners of SJZ Summer Fest. While The Sobrato Organization Main Stage ignites with GRAMMY Award-winning artists, the Blues/Big Easy Stage in partnership with Jay Meduri of the legendary South Bay venue Poor House Bistro features blues and New Orleans acts in the South portion of Plaza de César Chavez Park. SJMA Next Gen Stage puts the spotlight on emerging youth talent (free shows on Aug. 13 & Aug. 14). The historic 1936 venue Montgomery Theater brings its elegant décor and standout acoustics to SJZ Summer Fest as one of seven premier indoor concert spaces for national and regional artists. Additional indoor venues include the Hammer Theatre, Hammer4, Tabard Theater, and SJZ Break Room. Local curatorial and performance partners also include Mosaic America, Bloco do Sol, Jazz Organ Fellowship, and Little Village Foundation.

Housed on South 1st Street inside San Jose Jazz’s downtown office with a multi-media digital video wall featuring the latest in HD technology, The SJZ Break Room is among the core indoor venues. SJZ Break Room hosts three days of indoor shows with all live performances projection-mapped with Ultra-Short Throw Projectors onto high-end projection fabric mounted on motorized rollers. Sound from outdoor speakers and projections fill a 35 x 14 feet bank of floor to ceiling windows, providing a unique outdoor concert experience on San Carlos Street in addition to the wristband-accessed live indoor shows (100-person capacity venue).

Latin jazz remains a pillar of San Jose Jazz Summer Fest 2022 with Latin and salsa music lovers traveling to downtown San Jose from the far stretches of the West Coast for a chance to dance to many of today’s most distinguished acts. From artists such as Telmary & Friends, Silvana Estrada, Omar Sosa and his Quarteto Americanos project, and Alex Cuba, San Jose Jazz is just getting started with its Latin programming as the full lineup for the outdoor Latin Tropical Stage will be announced in June 2022. International music and artists hailing from across the globe have always flourished among many stages at SJZ Summer Fest. For 2022, San Jose Jazz proudly presented Ladysmith Black Mambazo from South Africa, Adrien Brandeis from Paris, among others.

SJZ Summer Fest 2022 — Kickoff Fundraiser Alert
Tickets are now on sale for San Jose Jazz’s fundraising event for SJZ Summer Fest 2022 taking place at downtown San Jose’s premier event space, Blanco Urban Venue (12 N San Pedro Street, San Jose, Calif.). Located in the historic downtown San Pedro Square neighborhood of San Jose, Blanco Urban Venue will transform its 12,000 square feet of immaculate design into a special benefit event raising money for the SJZ Jazz Aid Fund. San Jose Jazz curates the event in place of its annual SJZ Gala. The SJZ fundraiser will have silent and live auctions, four-star food and drinks from Homestead Catering (who catered the Summer Fest 2021 VIP section), performances from the SJZ High School All Stars U19s and 2022 Jazz Aid Fund grantee Bennett Roth-Newell, and a reveal of newly confirmed acts for SJZ Summer Fest 2022.

The SJZ Jazz Aid Fund commissioning program started in 2020 in direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic with artists being among those most adversely effected with the unprecedented cancelation of live concerts, tours, and limited income-generating activities. San Jose Jazz donated $33,000 through 33 individual grants during the initial 2020 funding round, and 27 standout musicians received $1,000 grants in March 2022 with new funding for SF Bay Area artists. Additional performance fees have been given to an array of Jazz Aid grantees for their participation in the SJZ New Works Fest 2021/2022 and forthcoming SJZ Summer Fest 2022. The Kickoff Fundraiser is an essential source of revenue to keep the SJZ Jazz Aid Fund alive.

SJZ Jazz Aid Fund commission grantees Kim Nalley, Amy D., and Kid Anderson will perform at SJZ Summer Fest 2022.

Headliner Highlights @ San Jose Jazz Summer Fest 2022

2021 GRAMMY-Award winner Ledisi is a 14-time GRAMMY nominated powerhouse vocalist who has garnered three Soul Train Music Awards, an NAACP Theater Award and thirteen NAACP Image Award nominations. Most recently, Ledisi received two LA Alliance Ovation Award nominations, one for “Best Featured Actress in a Musical.” Born in New Orleans and raised in Oakland, CA, Ledisi has truly earned a place in the pantheon of the greatest singers of her generation.

Ledisi is a favorite of former President Obama as well as a long list of icons including the late-Prince, Patti LaBelle, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, and many more. No stranger to the film and television world, Ledisi landed a role in her first feature in 2008, singing in the George Clooney directed film, Leatherheads. In 2015, she portrayed the great Mahalia Jackson in the Oscar-nominated movie, Selma and had a notable performance in Gabourney Sidibe’s Shatterbox Anthology film, The Tale Of Four. Ledisi secured her first television role playing the legendary Patti LaBelle on the hit BET series, American Soul. She also starred in the BET+ drama, Twice Bitten. In 2021, Ledisi landed the starring role in the film Remember Me: The Story of Mahalia Jackson. To cap off an amazing year, she will also portray the incomparable Gladys Knight in the long-awaited film based on Neil Bogart’s career, Spinning Gold, the story of Casablanca Records.

Lee Fields & The Expressions
Ever since the 1960s, soul music has poured out of Lee Fields as free and unstinting as God’s love. Lee Fields helped late soul sensations Sharon Jones (who was once Fields’ backup singer) and Charles Bradley (whom Fields took on his first tour) get their first break. Although he now tours stages around the world carrying their legacy forth, Fields brings to his music a divine wisdom culled through years of despair, obscurity, defeat. His latest album, It Rains Love, is music of endless love, endless hurt, reverberating kindness and wisdom, and decades and lifetimes’ worth of pain alchemized into kindness. Lee Fields stands at the forefront of today’s soul revival whose music has been sampled by hip-hop artists such as J. Cole and Travis Scott.

Durand Jones & The Indications
Durand Jones & The Indications are equally beloved for their energetic, joyous shows, dual lead singers, and thoughtful songwriting. From an Indiana basement (where the band recorded their 2016 self-titled debut LP as college students), the band has catapulted into the soul limelight and onto an international stage. Pushing beyond the boundaries of the funk and soul on their previous releases, The Indications’ third album, Private Space, unlocks the door to a wider range of sounds and launches boldly into a world of synthy-modern soul and disco beats dotted with strings. Anchored by a crate-digging sensibility and the high-low harmonies of Aaron Frazer and Durand Jones, Private Space shows The Indications’ mastery at melding revival sounds with a modern attitude. It’s an organic, timeless record that’s as fresh as clean kicks and familiar as your favorite well-worn LP.

Stanley Clarke
Four-time GRAMMY Award Winner Stanley Clarke has attained “living legend” status during his over 50-year career as a bass virtuoso. He is the first bassist in history who doubles on acoustic and electric bass with equal ferocity and the first jazz-fusion bassist ever to headline tours, selling out shows worldwide. A veteran of over 40 albums, he won the 2011 “Best Contemporary Jazz Album” GRAMMY Award for The Stanley Clarke Band. Clarke co-founded the seminal fusion group Return to Forever with Chick Corea and Lenny White. In 2012, Return to Forever won a GRAMMY Award and Latin GRAMMY for “Best Jazz Instrumental Album,” Forever.

Clarke’s creativity has been recognized and rewarded in every way imaginable. In 2022, Clarke was selected by the National Endowment for the Arts as one of its four new “Jazz Master” honorees. He was Rolling Stone’s very first “Jazzman of the Year” and bassist winner of “Playboy’s Music Award” for ten straight years. Clarke was honored with Bass Player Magazine’s “Lifetime Achievement Award” and is a member of Guitar Player Magazine’s “Gallery of Greats.” In 2011, he was honored with the highly prestigious “Miles Davis Award” at the Montreal Jazz Festival for his entire body of work. Clarke has won Downbeat Magazine’s Reader’s and Critics Poll for “Best Electric Bass Player” for many years. In September 2016, he became a part of the permanent collection displayed at the Smithsonian’s new National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) in Washington DC.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo
For 60 years, South Africa’s five-time GRAMMY Award winners, Ladysmith Black Mambazo has warmed the hearts of audiences worldwide with uplifting vocal harmonies, signature dance moves, and charming onstage banter. It was Paul Simon’s 1987 Graceland album that introduced Ladysmith Black Mambazo to the world. The late former South African President Nelson Mandela designated the group “South Africa’s cultural ambassadors to the world,” a title the members carry with them with the highest honor. In 2018, the group received not one but two GRAMMY Award nominations for two separate albums, a first in the history of World Music. These two nominations brought their career total to 19 GRAMMY Award nominations. One of these albums, Shaka Zulu Revisited, won “Best World Music Album.” This was the group’s fifth GRAMMY Award win, the most for any World Music group. In 2019, Ladysmith Black Mambazo collaborated for the third time with the famed Steppenwolf Theatre Company on a production entitled Lindiwe and released an album with songs from the show. Ladysmith Black Mambazo has performed for millions of people, singing a message of peace, love, and harmony.

Raul Midón & Alex Cuba
Along with releasing 10 studio albums as a solo artist, GRAMMY Award-nominated Raul Midón — dubbed “an eclectic adventurist” by People magazine — has collaborated with Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers, along with contributing to recordings by Queen Latifah, Snoop Dogg and the soundtrack to Spike Lee’s She Hate Me. Midón’s 2017 release, Bad Ass and Blind, features him alongside trumpeter Nicholas Payton and pianist Gerald Clayton. Bad Ass and Blind earned Midón a GRAMMY Award-nomination for “Best Jazz Vocal Performance.” His live 2016 rendition of John Coltrane’s jazz classic “Giant Steps” garnered more than a million views via Facebook. Midón also released the captivating CD/DVD Invisible Chains — Live from NYC, which documents an intimate concert in Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater from 2012.

Born and raised in Artemisa, Cuba, singer-songwriter Alex Cuba was awarded “Best New Artist” at the 2010 Latin GRAMMY Awards. His self-titled album, Alex Cuba, garnered a nomination for “Best Latin Pop Album” at the 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards and in 2011, he took home a BMI Latin Award for his songwriting on Nelly Furtado’s #1 Spanish hit “Manos Al Aire.” Alex Cuba’s 5th studio album, Healer, features five duets with singer-songwriters Ron Sexsmith, David Myles, Alejandra Ribera, Kuba Oms, and Anya Marina. The album won a Latin GRAMMY for “Best Singer-songwriter” and was nominated for a GRAMMY for “Best Latin Pop” in 2016. He also received a Latin GRAMMY Nomination for his 2019 album, Sublime, and he performed at the televised Award Show in Miami in November 2020. His latest album is Mendó, and features Lila Downs and Antonio Carmona.

Keyon Harrold
GRAMMY Award-winning trumpeter Keyon Harrold is a jazz treasure. He played trumpet at the White House as part of Common’s NPR “Tiny Desk Concert,” recorded with the likes of Beyoncé and 50 Cent, and supplied all of the trumpet playing in Don Cheadle’s Miles Davis biopic, Miles Ahead. The soundtrack to the film went on to win a GRAMMY Award for “Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media.”

Harrold’s career is simply a spectrum of greatness from touring and recording with Jay-Z and Cirque Du Soleil to being signed by legendary rapper Nas (Mass Appeal) and writing the theme song for The Queen Latifah’s Show. He is a first-call artist with feature credits with Keith Richards, Black Pumas, Mac Miller (Stay), Nas (The Jarreau of Rap), and his latest collaboration with UK crooner, Samm Henshaw (Still Broke). Harrold is a frequent collaborator with YEBBA, Robert Glasper, Maxwell, Common, PJ Morton, and Gregory Porter. He was an integral part of 2x GRAMMY Award-winning album, Black Summer’s Night, by R&B icon Maxwell.

Omar Sosa Quarteto Americanos
Composer-pianist-bandleader Omar Sosa’s musical trajectory traces the Diaspora from Africa to Cuba and Brazil; from Central America to Ecuador’s African-descent communities; from San Francisco and New York to his current home base in Barcelona. True to his Afro-Cuban origins, Sosa fashions a spirited vision of uncompromising artistic generosity that embraces humanity at large. Nominated for seven GRAMMY awards, twice for the BBC World Music Awards, recipient of a lifetime achievement award from the Smithsonian, and recipient of the “Afro-Caribbean Jazz Album of the Year” award from the Jazz Journalists Association in NYC, Sosa entwines the expressive traditions of Africa and the Americas in a unique cosmopolitan voice, articulating a brilliant and thoroughly contemporary global jazz idiom.

Omar brings to SJZ Summer Fest 2022 his new Quarteto Americanos, featuring Bay Area artists Josh Jones (drums), Sheldon Brown (saxophones), and Cuban bassist Ernesto Mazar Kindelán. With this ensemble, Omar fuses a wide range of jazz, hip-hop, and electronic elements with his Afro-Cuban roots to create an original urban sound — all with a Latin jazz heart.

Isaiah Sharkey
From playing Chicago’s jazz clubs in his teens to winning a GRAMMY Award before he was 30, Isaiah Sharkey is one of the most exciting guitar talents today. After honing his chops as a session guitarist for D’Angelo (with whom he won the 2015 GRAMMY Award for “Best R&B Album” with Black Messiah) and John Mayer, Sharkey has also created a name for himself as a solo artist. Love.Life.Live, his highly anticipated debut album, was released in September 2017 and earned Sharkey the “iHeart Radio Artist of the Month” award for It’s A Shame, his single featuring DJ Jazzy Jeff. Sharkey’s sophomore album, Love is the Key: The Cancerian Theme, was released in June 2019 to critical acclaim. Most recently, Isaiah collaborated with Common on the rapper’s latest albums — A Beautiful Revolution Part 1 and Part 2 — and touring as part of his band and creating music with Common for various film and TV projects.

Lemon Bucket Orkestra
Composed of many Ukrainian artists, Lemon Bucket Orkestra performs music from their latest album, IIHTS, which draws from a myriad of folk traditions across Eastern Europe. IIHTS is a song cycle inspired by a century old Slavic prison ballad that tells the story of a young rebel coming home after laying it all on the line. The group’s work draws emotional weight from the band’s personal experiences with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and also highlights the dozen-strong ensemble’s party-punk roots and attitude, which has developed since their formative days busking on the streets of Toronto.
