Leaning towards the Caribbean Jazz idiom for inspiration, Jazz Artists on the Greens has grown into the largest Caribbean jazz event in Trinidad and Tobago with the potential to expand further. On March 16 the event will celebrate its eleventh anniversary, a milestone in the entertainment industry locally and regionally which points to its validity as an entertainment option here.
As with previous editions, the 2013 event promises a powerful mix of contemporary Caribbean jazz styles, delivered by some of the most talented performers to grace our stages. This year’s line-up includes prolific American pannist Andy Narell, The Jesse Ryan 6tet featuring the promising young Trinidadian saxophonist, Cuban-born trumpeter Alexis Baro with his Latin Jazz Sextet, and the exciting Xavier Strings along with other surporise performers. The audience is in for a delightful treat.
Founded in 2003, Jazz Artists on the Greens™ has grown from strength to strength, ever widening its base of regional performers and its audience. As it evolves in the new decade of the 21st century, its initial purpose of exposing as many new patrons and young musicians as possible to jazz has been expanded to include becoming a major platform for the expression of Caribbean jazz artistes, based locally, regionally and internationally. The high demand by artistes for spots on the show will allow for the inclusion of surprise guests to be confirmed closer to the date.
The slow-growth organic model of a Jazz Artists on the Greens™ is a winning template as opposed to the hit-and-run approach of Plymouth. Jazz Artists on the Greens™ is the signal event that begins a jazz season in the Caribbean preceding Tobago and St Lucia by days and weeks, respectively, and it allows us to hear the possibilities of jazz transformed from the American response to the blues, with improvisation into a renewed inversion of Caribbean rhythms on improvised melodies. Over the years the producers of this signal event successfully created a true festival atmosphere, by offering space to concessionaires who offer food, drinks, CDs, musical instruments, festival memorabilia and give-aways. For 2013, the range of festival-related concessions and paraphernalia includes local jewelry, painters/artists, other food caterers, leather craft and musical instruments. Over the past ten years, the event has received glowing reviews in the press and encouraging responses from its many patrons who have been attending in increasing numbers and anticipation is rife that 2013’s production will continue in this vein of success.
