Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour 55th Anniversary

The longest consecutively running jazz festival in the world, the Monterey Jazz Festival was the dream of founder Jimmy Lyons. It became a reality in 1958, when the first festival featured artists like Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, Art Farmer, and Billie Holiday. This 55th Anniversary Tour reflects Monterey’s “traditional-untraditionalist” attitude, jazz-with-a-purpose, exuberance, and joyful fun, all of which continue to be the hallmark of the festival to this day.
