Pittsburgh Jazz Live International lineup announced

Posted By on Wed, Apr 3, 2013 at 4:17 PM

The annual JazzLive International festival, which takes place Downtown each June, has announced its 2013 lnieup.

The biggest name this year is someone who might make you think "funk" more than jazz: Chaka Khan. Other notables: Indian-American saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa; bassist and multi-instrumentalist Marcus Miller; guitarist Pat Martino; and artist-inresidence, local trumpeter Sean Jones.

The festival runs from June 7-9 this year, and the week prior, there will be a series of jazz concerts at local Macy's stores to raise the festival's profile. Also featured this year: an exhibit at 709 Penn by painter Al Bright, who makes art while listening to jazz.
