The Jamaica Downtown Jazz Festival aims to celebrate the rich jazz heritage rooted in Southeast Queens and promotes generations of talents who hail from diverse cultures residing in this community today. This weekend-long music marathon will pay tribute to a legendary performer each year and feature some of the most prominent names in jazz along with emerging musicians.

Today’s offering is live music. American drum-set doyen and teaching artist Pheeroan akLaff reflects music centered in powerful ritual and imagination. He has performed at international festivals, and mulit-disciplined art venues for more than thirty years. He is an avid workshop leader and contributor to a milieu of mid-1970’s Avant Garde pioneers. Numerous recordings display his work bolstering a wide range of music composers.
