Blue Note at Sea Tent

Blue Note at Sea

 

Monterey Jazz Festival and Blue Note at Sea are pleased to present the Blue Note at Sea Tent at the 61st Monterey Jazz Festival!

One of the most iconic names in jazz, along with the Monterey Jazz Festival, is Blue Note. Today, three organizations boast that title: Blue Note Records, Blue Note Jazz Clubs and Blue Note at Sea Cruise. All three will be combining their resources to program and present the second Blue Note Tent at the Monterey Jazz Festival.

Located on the Midway on the Grounds, the Tent will be a hub of activity, with:

  • Listening events that feature the latest Blue Note releases

  • Artist interviews hosted by Don Was, president of Blue Note Records

  • CD signings

  • Displays of Blue Note historic memorabilia

  • Presentations about future Blue Note Records projects

  • Blue Note at Sea Cruise will be the host for all of the activities in the tent and will conduct a festival-long “Win A Free Cabin” contest for the upcoming Blue Note at Sea Cruise (January 26 - February 2, 2019) as well as presenting videos from the first sailing of the cruise  

  • Guests will be able to reserve staterooms for the cruise at the lowest prices offered at any time
