This week’s Winter Jazzfest seems to be a kind of branch indicate — for a festival, and maybe for jazz in New York City. What started 10 years ago as a one-night showcase underneath one roof has stretched to five days during 10 venues, featuring some-more than 90 groups in a immeasurable array of styles.

The subterraneous corner is still there, though this year’s acts embody mixed Grammy winners, beyond-jazz acts such as thespian Keren Ann, and 3 midweek marquee concerts. One uncover teams star pianists Robert Glasper and Jason Moran to applaud a 75th anniversary of Blue Note Records.

Still, most of a festival’s fad still resides in a signature two-night marathon this Friday and Saturday, where acts perform in discerning period in adjacent Greenwich Village nightclubs. For a cost of a singular ticket, concertgoers can select — or try to select — between groups, that operation from Balkan and New Orleans coronet to Latin and straight-ahead jazz. The 18-piece orchestral cocktail garb Mother Falcon, with cello and glockenspiel, will also appear.

At WBGO HD2 we’ll tide a brew of all 92 groups during this year’s Winter Jazzfest around a time to ready for these new sounds. (For some-more insights, check out a conversation between WBGO’s Josh Jackson and NPR Music’s Patrick Jarenwattananon on a weekly new-music magazine, The Checkout.) Here are 5 of a acts behaving in this year’s WJF marathon, and a outline of what they devise to perform.
