Featured Artists:

Tiffany Austin: With the June 1st release of her new CD, "Unbroken," Tiffany Austin further solidifies her standing as one of the leading vocalists on the current international jazz scene.  Austin was propelled onto the national stage in 2016 when her debut recording, "Nothing But Soul," received rave reviews.

Howard Wiley: When it’s time to get a party started, Howard Wiley gets the call. The Oakland saxophonist has been a mainstay on the Bay Area music scene since he was a teenager in Richmond, and at 39 he’s taken up the mantle of his mentors, playing soul-steeped jazz palpably connected to its roots as social music.

Joe Orrach: “Tap is the most important dance in America. It’s like jazz; it says things deeply,” says multi-faceted artist and teacher Joe Orrach, creator of a new brand of tap dance-theater that he performs locally and internationally in Paris and Shanghai.

Artemio Posadas: Artemio Posadas, son master artist, is a 2016 National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellow, as well as recipient of the 2016 Bess Lomax Hawes Fellowship  "in recognition of an individual who has made a significant contribution to the preservation and awareness of cultural heritage."

George Cole: Singer and breakneck acoustic guitarist George Cole brings an expertise to his guitar playing and singing that is filtered through Rock and Roll, Gypsy Jazz and All things American, bringing to mind the old adage “Everything Old Is New Again”. Cole has played with David Grisman, Jazz legend Keely Smith and Chris Isaak to name a few.
