The Williamsburg Jazz Festival, started in 2001 by trumpet player, Jesse Selengut, is now in it’s fourth year running and is bigger then ever. The annual jazz festival has expanded to a full week of music, and includes 23 bands and 7 venues. Beginning this year Jesse Selengut has teamed up with another Williamsburg resident, trombonist Rick Parker. Together, their bands, NOIR and Rick Parker Collective, will perform as hosts at this year’s event.
