A Winter Jazzfest Globalfest 2013 Time

And so it must be that time of year again, after that Mayan calendar end of the world date and right before that globalFEST 10 festival and in between all other kinds of headline news of the day, that I find myself opening up a copy of this months New Years edition of The New York City Jazz Record to see this really big ad on page 23 for this years Winter Jazzfest that reads something like from their website as follows:

BOOM Collective and Search and Restore are pleased to announce the lineup for 2013 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST.  The festival is to be held on January 11th & 12th, 2013 in New York City.  On both nights the festival will take over six venues in the Village, Le Poisson Rouge, Sullivan Hall, Zinc Bar, Bitter End, SubCulture and Bowery Electric.  This marks the ninth year of the annual NYC WINTER JAZZFEST, and the continued mission to showcase top quality jazz to industry professionals, avid jazz fans, and new audiences.

The 2013 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST will feature over 70 different jazz groups during the Arts Presenters (APAP) conference.  Similar to past years the festival will provide an opportunity for artists to showcase in front of presenters, promoters, talent buyers, educators, musicians and avid fans. Over 5000 arts professionals will be in New York City for the annual Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) conference from January 10-14.  As there will be hundreds of showcases scheduled throughout the weekend around the city both at the Hilton Hotel and in alternative venues, Winter Jazzfest offers APAP conference attendees, and the general public, the opportunity to experience the best of today's new live jazz and experimental music in club venue settings.  Once famed as the focal point of New York City's rich jazz and live music scene, Bleecker Street and the Village provide for an ideal festival experience groups performing all night at six of the neighborhood's esteemed venues within close proximity of each other.  On this night the 2013 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST will continue to redeem the rich jazz heritage of the Village and again will bring jazz fans back to Bleecker Street.  The 2013 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST includes over 70 of today’s most interesting jazz groups from New York, Brooklyn, and beyond.

Currently new jazz groups are underrepresented, yet they are culturally essential to the continued development and future of jazz and the cultivation of new audiences for jazz.  Jazz artists need support and exposure to the significant institutional booking forum that the Arts Presenters conference represents.  Winter Jazzfest is pleased to offer a forum for presenters and music enthusiasts to experience and support the future of jazz.

The 2013 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST features curatorial input from Meghan Stabile of Revive Music Group and Adam Schatz of Search & Restore.  In line with the mission of Winter Jazzfest, Stabile and Schatz continue to invigorate NYC's jazz scenes in their own ways by promoting and supporting young and deserving new jazz artists while bringing increasingly growing audiences to the music.

Search & Restore provides a point of discovery for the new jazz & improvised music community  Founded in late 2007 by Adam Schatz, S+R has since grown into a 501©3 non-profit organization, committed to bringing the artists and audiences of new jazz and improvised music together in new ways, while never forgetting it’s DIY roots.

Revive Music Group is a musician advocacy firm and boutique creative music agency that offers pioneering live music productions and online exposure for musicians. Revive represents musicians through artist development and global awareness, while educating and exposing younger audiences to jazz in nontraditional ways.  Visit the online hub dedicated to musicians at
