World-class regional and local talent in a relaxed jazz picnic ambience combine to create the ultimate jazz experience. "Come for the lime…Discover the music!" continues to resonate as a stamp of approval as patrons will again be entertained by some of the best talent in the industry.
In 2019, the cast of regional artists are Cuban pianist and singer Janysett McPherson celebrating the Latin American influence in the jazz; contemporary jazz guitarist and Caribbean jazz icon Ronald 'Boo' Hinkson from St Lucia; steelpan jazz virtuoso Leon Foster Thomas from Trinidad and Tobago along with local supporting acts, the EFX The Band (Emile Fortune Xperiment) and the Holistic Music School Orchestra. Exocubs Steel Orchestra will play on the Greens for arriving patrons. This mix of Creole and contemporary jazz, smooth jazz and sonic improvised experiments that utilise the best of local music and original music creates an atmosphere that complements the experience of a jazz picnic with opportunities for music and merchandise purchase, for food and beverage product and service executions and for fun.
Jazz Artists on the Greens™ is the signal event that begins a jazz season in the Caribbean preceding St. Lucia and Tobago by days and weeks, and allowing us to hear the possibilities of jazz transformed from the American response to the blues with improvisation into a renewed inversion of Caribbean rhythms on improvised melodies. It is a large festival-styled jazz concert event that was initiated in June 2003. Leaning towards the Caribbean Jazz idiom for inspiration, the objective was to expose as many new patrons and young musicians as possible to Jazz, in an informal setting that could help remove much of the mystique that seemed to surround the genre. "Come for the lime…Discover the music."
PRODUCTION ONE LTD offers your organization an opportunity to partner with us in our presentation of the country's premier, open-air Caribbean Jazz concert and to benefit from the synergies to be obtained through an alignment with us. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
