Reflecting a “reunion” theme that returns phenomenal jazz artists and performers who have taken the Festival stage over the last 10 years, including five former artists-in-residence, the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation recently announced the lineup for the 40th Annual Detroit Jazz Festival presented by Quicken Loans.

“We’re really excited about the exceptional lineup we’ve assembled for the 40th year celebration which reflects a reunion of some of the most inspiring performers and performances we’ve had the pleasure of hosting over the last 10 years at the jazz festival,” said Chris Collins, president and artistic director of the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation. “From jazz legends to up-and-coming revolutionaries and Detroit Homecoming artists, these artists have become a part of our extended family and it’s only appropriate they come back to headline our reunion year.”

Highlight performances for this year’s festival include those from former artists-in-residence Ron Carter, Pat Metheny, Joshua Redman, Danilio Pérez and Terence Blanchard.
