The largest jazz festival in the Southern Hemisphere takes place on one of the smaller islands in the Pacific. Java, the capital and most populous island of Indonesia—a trans-continental country comprised of a chain of islands—hosts the Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival (often called just Java Jazz).

In fact, as one of the largest jazz festivals in the world, Java Jazz features more than a dozen stages with live music, with more than 1,000 musicians, many of whom call the South Pacific home. Java Jazz tends to highlight Indonesian artists—as Jakarta is an enormous cultural hub—although previous years’ lineups have also included everything from American pop stars, and Japanese ska punks to Nigerian saxophonists and Broadway-style stage performers. 2016’s rendition attracted upwards of 120,000 visitors.

On any year, the international artist spread can feature names like American jazz-rock band Blood Sweat & Tears, jazz-fusion pianist Chick Corea, Cuban trumpeter Arturo Sandoval, Italian-born, New York City-based pianist and vocalist Diana Schaechter, and English singer/songwriter/arranger/pianist Anthony Strong. Additionally, larger ensembles like the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw (the jazz group from the famed eponymous Amsterdam venue) have played multiple times. On the other end of the spectrum, you’ll find an act like the U.K.-based experimental Renegade Brass Band, comprised of eight horn players, two percussionists, a scratch DJ and live MC.

Smooth Jazz fans await Jeff Lorber, Elan Trotman, Michael Manson and more to be announced.

Armory Smooth Jazz Fête will be held at the historic Armory located at 330 Marshall Street in Lansing, MI. Armory Smooth Jazz Fête aims to celebrate the properties rich heritage of community related events and activities which has not been done at this level in several years. From 1924 to 2005, the Marshall Street Armory was home to the 119th Field Artillery of the Michigan National Guard. In addition, throughout its nearly 90 years of service to the Lansing community, the Armory has hosted a variety of events, including the training sessions of the National Guard, dances, weddings, circuses, boxing matches, WWII rallies, and St. Patrick’s Day parties. Five years after lapsing into disuse, the Gillespie Group purchased the building in 2010. The fully restored Armory is now home to the Gillespie Group’s corporate headquarters as well as a host of non-profit organizations including the Capital Area United Way which we’re excited to have on board as a supportive and receiving partner.

A native of Chicago, Michael Manson took interest in the electric guitar at the age of 14. Influenced by Al Jarreau and intrigued by the technique of Jarreau’s bass player Abe Laboriel, his love of music soon began to shift towards the bass guitar. At 15, he and a group of friends formed Togetherness, releasing an album and two singles before Manson left to join the Navy six years later. After returning to Chicago to obtain both his B.A. and Master’s in Music degrees, he joined City Lights and began performing regularly on Chicago’s jazz circuit. In 1999, he was invited to play the Montreux Casino Lights ’99 festival. Sharing the stage with the likes of Boney James, George Duke and Kirk Whalum. Afterwards, George invited him onboard the Montreux Jazz tour. Since then, Manson has performed with the who is who of contemporary jazz and also co-produced, for example, Brian Culbertson’s “I’m Gonna Miss You”, but he also continued to branch out, producing and writing while on tour. In 2002, Bass-master Michael Manson moved from sideman to center-stage, releasing his solo debut “The Bottom Line”. Three albums followed and meanwhile he has joined the ranks of today’s premiere jazz artists.
