5/6 Playboy Jazz Festival's Harvey Mason from Fourplay and Terence Blanchard!

The 33rd annual Playboy Jazz Festival is just around the corner! This landmark event continues its rich tradition of featuring the biggest names in jazz, along with future jazz headliners delivering an exciting mix of everything from standards and blues to Latin beats and world fusion.

We’ve got two legendary Jazz musicians in this year's roster joining the show today.

Harvey Mason from Fourplay

For two decades, the contemporary jazz quartet known as Fourplay has enjoyed consistent artistic and commercial success by grafting elements of R&B, pop and a variety of other sounds to their unwavering jazz foundations. In the course of a dozen recordings – six of which have climbed to the top of Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Album charts – the supergroup has continued to explore the limitless dimensions and permutations of jazz while at the same time appealing to a broad mainstream audience.

Terence Blanchard

A multi-Grammy-winning trumpeter, bandleader, arranger and film score master, Terence Blanchard is known as a straight ahead artist in the hard-bop tradition. But in recent years, he developed an African-fusion style of playing that makes him unique among today’s trumpet elite.
