The Miami Nice Jazz Festival, an extension of the internationally celebrated Nice France Jazz Festival, and one of the largest and most significant jazz events of its kind in Europe, is scheduled to take place for the first time in the United States this fall. The stateside home of the festival is downtown Miami where a three day jazz celebration will take place beginning on October 26, 2012.

The first Miami Nice Jazz Festival is a partnership between Sister Cities Nice, France and Miami, Florida, joining forces under the leadership of the festival’s founder and CEO, Philippe Pautesta-Herder. The festival takes place in downtown Miami’s historic gem, the Olympia Theater at the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts. “Downtown Miami provides the perfect backdrop for the festival as Miami is a city rich in historic heritage and culture parallel to that embodied by the festival, its musicians and its patrons”, said the festival founder.

The festival kicks off Miami French Week, a week designed to promote French culture in South Florida. “The Miami Nice Jazz Festival is the first and only jazz festival of such international significance to come to South Florida and I am extremely grateful to be a part of such an iconic occurrence”, said Philippe.

The lineup will showcase an eclectic mix of both straight-ahead and Latin jazz performances, highlighting legendary artists such as Dee Dee Bridgewater (Festival Ambassador), along with Florida debuts of bassist Kyle Eastwood, Eddie Palmieri & his Latin Jazz Band and French drummer André Ceccarelli featuring Alex Ligertwood ( former lead singer of Santana).

Also scheduled to perform at the festival will be the Florida International University Big Band featuring vocalist Sally Night and The South Florida Jazz Orchestra with Chuck Bergeron featuring Nicole Henry. Jazz student bands from Florida International University and University of Miami will also animate the Gusman Center each night when doors open at 7:00 p.m.

Kyle Eastwood opens for vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater in this prestigious 3-day festival featuring jazz of all genres.

The 6th Annual Preserve Jazz Festival – presented by Tom Williams Lexus – is pleased to announce this year’s headliner, the incomparable, KIRK WHALUM on his 2012 Romance Language Tour!

Soulful, passionate, stirring…these are the words most often used to describe Kirk’s music. Forged from his Memphis, (TN) gospel roots and his 1980‘s initiation into the thriving Houston, TX nightclub scene, Kirk’s big, rich tenor sound is unmistakably his. It was also in Houston where jazz pianist Bob James “discovered” him and brought him on tour, which led to five successful albums with Columbia Records, including Cache, Kirk’s first #1 album. After moving to Los Angeles, Kirk became an in demand session player for top artists like, Barbara Streisand, Al Jarreau, Luther Vandross, Larry Carlton, Quincy Jones and most notably, Whitney Houston.

It’s his sax heard on her mega-hit, “I Will Always Love You.” Kirk soon followed that career high point with his phenomenal hit album released on Warner Bros. Records, For You, perhaps the most successful of over 25 solo recordings to date. Kirk is the recipient of numerous awards and acknowledgements for his musical excellence including three Dove Award nominations, an NAACP Image Award nomination and has won two Stellar Awards-Gospel music’s highest honor. An eleven time Grammy nominee, Kirk won his first Grammy award for Best Gospel Song (“It’s What I Do”-featuring Lalah Hathaway) alongside life-long friend and gifted writer, Jerry Peters.

Schedule: 4pm: Keith Williams | 5pm: Eric Darius | 6:30pm: Alex Bugnon with Eric Essix | 8pm: Kirk Whalum with vocalists Kevin Whalum & Nicole Henry
