New Mexico Jazz Festival

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

The New Mexico Jazz Festival is a collaborative project of The Outpost Performance Space and The Lensic Performing Arts Center both 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations.


OUTPOST PERFORMANCE SPACE

Established in 1988, The Outpost Performance Space is Albuquerque’s non-profit, member-supported, community-based Performing Arts Center. While presenting numerous concerts in larger venues, including those of the New Mexico Jazz Festival each July,
Outpost’s home is at The Space— an intimate venue located at 210 Yale Blvd SE just down the street from the University of New Mexico. Outpost presents more than 100 concerts each year— jazz, experimental, folk & roots, spoken word, teen
performance nights and much more— plus classes for youth and adults. Outpost also host visual arts exhibits in the Inpost Artspace. The Outpost Performance Space is unique— intimate and elegant— and we invite you to come see us. For more information

The Lensic Performing Arts Center

The Lensic Performing Arts Center is Santa Fe’s premier year-round performing arts center: a state-of-the art venue for theater, music, dance, film, lectures, community events and family programming set in a historic theater in the heart of the City
Different. The Lensic offers over 250 performances a year, technical apprenticeships in the performing arts, and free performances to over 20,000 local school children a year. The “Lensic Presents Series” reaches out beyond the traditional performing
arts to bring new and original works to Santa Fe. “Under Construction” an original, ongoing series showcases theater pieces under development. “Big Screen Classics” honors The Lensic’s origins as a movie house by screening treasured movies from the
earliest silent films to the latest in high definition satellite broadcasting. “World Music Series” brings international musicians and artists from the Balkans and Bhutan to Egypt, Ireland, Ethiopia and Japan to The Lensic stage. For more information

The Santa Fe Jazz Foundation (Jazz Festival Partner Emeritus)

The Santa Fe Jazz Foundation was founded in 1990. Its mission is to help musicians in need and to financially support college jazz programs as well as other jazz organizations throughout the country. Traditionally, the Foundation has helped musicians
who are experiencing health problems and are without insurance or who are unable to work. Over the years, many musicians have been helped by the generous support of individuals through the Santa Fe Jazz Foundation. In additon to its philanthropic
work, the Santa Fe Jazz Foundation has presented hundreds of concerts in both Santa Fe and Albuquerque in venues ranging from the Santa Fe Opera to the St Francis Auditorium and The Hive.

Founded in 2006, the New Mexico Jazz Festival followed on the work of the Open Arts Foundation’s Santa Fe Jazz and International Music Festival (2000-2005) which produced hundreds of concerts and brought an unprecedented wealth of high quality jazz
to Santa Fe. In 2006, our inaugural effort presented McCoy Tyner, Branford Marsalis, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, the Newport Jazz Allstars, and more. In 2007 we expanded our efforts and presented more concerts in both cities
including performances by the legendary Sonny Rollins in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. We also inaugurated a partnership with the City of Albuquerque’s Summerfest by offering 5 hours of music on Civic Plaza— an evening which was free and open to the
public and which was capped by a performance by Toumani Diabaté’s Symmetric Orchestra. In 2010 that evening on Civic Plaza moved to Route 66 in Nob Hill and event which features 120 performers on 3 stages and draws 60,000 people. The New Mexico Jazz
Festival continues to grow and you can see the line-ups for all the years listed below.
