The Grammy Award-winning Robert Glasper Experiment, whose crossover hit “Black Radio” won for best R&B album for 2013, will take the stage at the Rialto. Jazz vocalistAllan Harris will sing a Tribute to Nat “King” Cole, which played to sold-out houses on a recent 40-day tour through the U.S. and beyond.

Included as part of the festival line-up are two UApresents jazz shows at the Fox Theatre: vocalist Dianne Reeves and The Hot Sardines.

The festival will be promoting “Jazz in January” for the entire month beginning at midnight on January 1, with Rick Braun’s New Year’s Eve at the JW Marriott Star Pass Resort and the festival will support local jazz at restaurants and clubs in the two weeks leading up to the festival kick-off. Jazz performances will be held in unlikely places, as well, including the Street Car.

The festival will end on Jan. 28 with a special joint production between the Rialto Theatre and the festival: the legendary composer of pop and jazz standards, Burt Bacharach, will take the Fox stage with his 11-piece ensemble.
