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.
