The 25th Anniversary Healdsburg Jazz Festival was celebrated with 9 days of concerts in Wine Country. The Festival honored the past, present, and future by presenting today’s hottest artists like NEA Jazz Master Dianne Reeves, 2023 Best New Artist and Best Jazz Vocal Album Grammy Award winner Samara Joy, vibraphonist Joel Ross, alto sax legend Charles McPherson, percussion maestro and Healdsburg Jazz artist-in-residence John Santos, New Orleans clarinetist Dr. Michael White, North Bay vocalist Stella Heath, New Orleans saxophone star NEA Jazz Master Donald Harrison, powerhouse tenor saxophonist Howard Wiley, and so many more.
They represented a range of genres, and their music was paired with food, wine, film, spoken word, and the visual arts. Each day an event took place in stunning, unique, and intimate settings that reflected the natural beauty and creative spirit of Healdsburg. With both ticketed and free community concerts, the Festival truly had something for everyone.
