Launching The 2015 Montclair Jazz Festival: Bigger, Better and Big Plans For the Future

You’ve come a long way baby.

Montclair Jazz Festival, returning this year bigger and better, has grown every year along with the organization that started it all, Jazz House Kids. Both are here in Montclair, thanks to the vision of founder Montclair jazz vocalist and recording artist Melissa Walker, with creative direction from her husband, Christian McBride—a four-time GRAMMY Award-winning bassist, composer and arranger.
