JCAL is thrilled to announce the Downtown Jamaica Jazz Festival’s return to it’s landmark location. Downtown Jamaica Jazz Festival 2021 will take place on the lawn of Jamaica Performing Arts Center on May 15th and May 16th, from 12pm to 7:30pm.

This year’s lineup — curated by The Jazz Gallery’s Rio Sakairi — is one of it’s strongest yet. The headliner of Downtown Jamaica Jazz Festival is none other than Grammy Nominated Saxophonist Ravi Coltrane. The son of legendary Jazz artists John Coltrane and Alice Coltrane, Ravi is a highly regarded bandleader, and composer. In the course of a twenty plus year career, Mr. Coltrane has worked as a sideman to many, recorded noteworthy albums for himself and others and founded a prominent independent record label, RKM.
