Smooth Jazz for Scholars 2023 (20th anniversary!) dates/lineup December 22, 2022

Posted by Mike C. in Uncategorized.

Last Wednesday, keyboardist Jay Rowe officially announced the dates, lineup, tickets for his 2023 Smooth Jazz for Scholars. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, this two-night event in Jay’s hometown of Milford, Connecticut, benefits the city public schools’ music department. I’ve been on hand for all but one show since 2007.

Here was Jay’s official announcement:

JJ Sansaverino is making his debut at Scholars, but the other seven headliners have been here before. It will be Ken Navarro‘s first time back since 2011 and Kim Waters‘ first appearance since 2014’s first night.

Repeating the information about the 20th anniversary of Smooth Jazz for Scholars:

Friday, April 28
Chieli Minucci
Ken Navarro
Nelson Rangell
Marion Meadows

Saturday, April 29
Jessy J
Paul Taylor
Kim Waters

General admission tickets can be bought through Eventbrite, but reserved seating must be ordered by writing a check to:

I’ll end this post with recaps of the first night and second night in 2022.
