The people wanted Maxwell. This year, the Hampton Jazz Festival will deliver. The festival, in its 52nd year, announced the lineup Tickets, priced at $76 each day, will go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Hampton Coliseum box office, and 800-745-3000. Beverly and Maze, a Philadelphia soul band known for creating a party atmosphere, will be making their record 18th appearance at the festival. It will be KEM’s ninth appearance. The event will also feature Babyface, Ledisi and The Gap Experience (featuring members of The Gap Band, which played the festival in 2002 and 2004). Ashley Felder, an R&B singer from Norfolk, will open the festival, making her first appearance.

Each night will also feature a “smooth jazz jam” — Kirk Whalum and Friends on Friday night, Will Downing and Maysa on Saturday, and Selina and Gerald Albright on Sunday.
