Winter Jazzfest 2012 Schedule

by delarue

Here’s the 2012 Winter Jazzfest schedule, where the cheesy Bleecker Street strip suddenly turns into heaven for jazz fans. You best bet is the $45 two-day pass for Friday and Saturday, currently onsale at le Poisson Rouge; $35 single-day tix are also available. So many good bills here it’s outrageous – and even the segues are good. Friday night Jenny Scheinman followed by Steven Bernstein and his crew playing Sly Stone? Outta sight! Julian Lage followed by the NY Gypsy All-Stars? Think about that one for a minute…and just go. Saturday night Bernie Worrell followed by Bill Laswell is going to pull both the oldschool crowd and the new jacks so show up early; and all the night owls will be rewarded for sticking around when Soul Cycle and then Marc Cary do their funky stuff in the wee hours at Sullivan Hall.
