Maui Jazz and Blues Festival is back at the Royal Lahaina Resort from September 10th through the 13th. Last year jazz enthusiasts were treated to a weekend full of Jazz Master greats: Donald Harrison of HBO Treme TV series & Big Chief of Congo Square; Steve Turre of Saturday Night LIVE Band & Grammy Nominated Javon Jackson from The Art Blakey Jazz Messengers alumni of three generations. They performed an extraordinary and never before seen Jazz Tribute at the 4th Annual Maui Jazz & Blues Festival dedicated to Art Blakey with a standing ovation at the Sold Out Festival in Ka’anapali, Maui at the ocean front Royal Lahaina Resort.
