George Wein’s 85th Anniversary Celebration with the Newport All Stars: Randy Brecker, Anat Cohen, Lew Tabackin, Howard Alden, Lewis Nash and Peter Washington

The "father" of all jazz festivals-he created the Newport Jazz Festival in 1954-Wein was here with us for our 30th anniversary. We're returning the favour by welcoming him back to celebrate his 85th birthday! As young as ever, producer, promoter and pianist George Wein still visits the four corners of the globe with the cream of the jazz scene. This time out, the octogenarian pianist not only brings in Howard Alden (guitar), Lew Tabackin (tenor sax), Peter Washington (bass) and Lewis Nash (drums), who visited us in 2009, but trumpeter Randy Brecker and clarinetist-saxophonist Anat Cohen, the young sensation of the moment.

Alain Simard (Festival International de Jazz de Montréal)
I was lucky enough to witness an amazing gathering of superb jazz musicians (such as Randy Brecker, Anat Cohen, Lew Tabackin…) who came together in New York City to celebrate George Wein’s 85th birthday. Contented and in full possession of his faculties, the famous pianist and founder of jazz festivals (including the Newport Jazz Festival, founded in 1954), promised me he’d repeat the concert-celebration in Montréal!
