Monterey Jazz Festival Artists-in-Residence Past and Present

Monterey Jazz Festival Artist-in-Residence Webpage

“Monterey Jazz Festival’s Artist-in-Residence works year-round with young musicians in performances and clinics at our Next Generation Jazz Festival, Summer Jazz Camp, and at the Monterey Jazz Festival.

Over the Festival’s history, many artists have had an informal role in the production and artistic selection of musicians for the festival, including John Lewis, Dizzy Gillespie, and many others who acted as guest soloists with the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra during festival weekend. This role was revisited in 1994 when Tim Jackson rebooted the program to highlight specific artists during each festival.

In 2004, the Artist-in-Residence program was revamped to include visits to the Next Generation Jazz Festival and Summer Jazz Camp outside the Festival weekend in September. Starting in 2018, the Artist-in-Residence program added an annual concert at California State University, Monterey Bay, taking place prior to the Next Generation Jazz Festival.”
