Winter Fest 2018

2018 San Jose Jazz Winter Fest, presented by Metro, is a “wrap.” The “cool” counterpart to the SJZ Summer Fest, presented jazz’s leading voices and emerging talents in club-like settings in San Jose and Palo Alto. This year’s Fest was a smash success, with seven sold-out shows including a performance by Dee Dee Bridgewater at the Hammer Theatre. Stay tuned for the official 2018 Winter Fest Gallery.
