Celebrating 65 Years, the illustrious Monterey Jazz Festival once again sends six of its finest jazz ambassadors to Santa Barbara as part of its popular touring program. Multiple-Grammy-winning vocalists Dee Dee Bridgewater, among the “best-rounded and unique jazz vocalists singing today” (All About Jazz), and Kurt Elling, “the standout male jazz vocalist of our time” (The New York Times), scat, swoon and soar as they bring swing standards, moody ballads, bop favorites and Latin hits to life.
