SLTB officials say even with constant innovation, top rated performers and significant improvements in the event, they have aimed to keep ticket prices affordable. Director of Tourism Louis Lewis says, “This deliberate policy coupled with Early Bird Specials and other discount packages, have allowed as many patrons as possible to participate in the experience of Saint Lucia Jazz.”

Louis says “as we move deeper into the final month, production activities, media engagements and other preparatory work for Saint Lucia Jazz are to reach a fever pitch.” According to him, “the festival has received significant exposure in the international media and so we are anticipating a good turnout this year.”

Saint Lucia Jazz 2011 features a slew of Grammy winning and nominated artistes. Headlined by nine (9) time Grammy winner John Legend, other names include pop idol R&B sensation Trey Songz, Chuck Brown, Regina Carter, Maceo Parker, Carimi and Morgan Heritage and includes accomplished acts like Jazz fusion quartet Yellowjackets, violinist Regina Carter, Saint Lucian saxophonist Augustin ‘Jab’ Duplessis, saxophonist Maceo Parker , Hatian Creole Band Carimi, African vocalist Angelique Kidjo, Saint Lucian vocalist Mervyn Wilkison, Jamaican reggae band Morgan Heritage, and many more.

One of the major jazz-fusion bands born in the ‘70s, the Yellowjackets have continued to evolve and create great new music across three decades. The group features original members Russell Ferrante (keyboards) and Jimmy Haslip (bass), along with world-class saxophonist Bob Mintzer and the return of drummer Will Kennedy. With imaginative compositions, powerhouse chops and deep funk grooves, they are among the premier working bands in jazz history.

Keyboardist Jeff Lorber emerged during the same period with six albums that he now calls “second generation fusion.” Always a phenomenal player and composer, Lorber’s trademark sound became widely emulated and he is also a respected record producer. For this SFJAZZ date, Lorber returns to his soulful, funk-laden brand of electric jazz. Joining Jeff in this contemporary all-star band are legendary trumpeter Randy Brecker (of Brecker Brothers fame) and saxophonist Eric Marienthal (Chick Corea Elektric band). Along with the Yellowjackets, this show is truly a slammin’ double-bill!
