It may be a sextet on stage but the Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour’s musicians are infused with a spectrum of iconic influential names in music. From Gillespie to Hancock, Charles to Wonder, and many more in between, the touring jazzists will continue the legacy of the Festival expanding its boundaries beyond California’s central coast. These “traditional-untraditionalists” mirror their predecessors’ footprints taking on jazz classics and original compositions by its band members. Midon, Payton, Coltrane, Clayton, Sanders and Hutchinson have created waves of sound beyond Monterey, and San Diego is getting ready for their tide.
