The South Beach Jazz Festival kicks off with Sobe at Nobe featuring Matthew Whitaker, an 18-year-old, blind American jazz pianist with an impressive resume and incredible talent. Whitaker has played world-renowned stages including Lincoln Center, the Apollo Theater, Cargenie Hall, and New Orleans Jazz Festival… just to name a few. You may have seen him featured on 60 Minutes earlier this year. The two-time ASCAP Foundation Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composers Award winner will take the stage at the North Beach Bandshell with his quartet on Friday, January 8 at 8 pm. Matthew Whitaker's sound is filled with refined dynamics, a light and artful touch, accompanied by bright strings and rhythm. His approach to each instrument is thoughtful and distinctive- melodic and improvisational on piano, complex textured and harmonically dense on the organ. With a personal touch, supported by highly skilled colleagues, Matthew, whose enthusiasm is incessant, is the center of this quartet, smooth, graceful, and full of energy. Matthew and his band will have any audience on their feet swaying and shouting with delight. Tickets are $35 - $75.

Roxana Ahmed with be performing live on Euclid Oval in South Beach.

Javier Garcia, Rose Max & Ramatis Brazilian Quintet, Federico Britos, Jesse Jones, and Troy Anderson and the Hot Five will be LIVE ON LINCOLN from 12 - 6 pm on Sunday, January 10, 2021.
