The 24th annual Red Sea Jazz Festival is presenting over 20 class acts this year from August 23-26 in Eilat.
Among the highlights will be veteran singer/songwriter Rickie Lee Jones, best known for her hit “Chuck E’s in Love.”
Vibraphonist Stefon Harris and Blackout play modern jazz mixed with
beats, melodies and soundscapes associated with R&B, pop, hip-hop
and a lot of funk.
Teen virtuoso Nikki Yanofsky who made a splash at the Montreaux Jazz
Festival four years ago at age 12, offers a unique vocal mix between
the musical tradition of the great jazz singers and the world of light
music and Broadway musicals. And the legendary Gary Burton will bring
his vibraphone mastery to the festival.
