The Jazz88 Twin Cities Winter Jazz Fest returns on Sunday, February 26, 2006, at the Doubletree Hotel-Park Place in Minneapolis

Saxophone great David “Fathead” Newman leads a lineup featuring be-bop, big band, swing and world music.  Newman was a longtime sax man for Ray Charles, and his muscular, meaty tone can be heard on hits like What'd I Say” and “Hit the Road Jack.”  Newman's 2005 release “I Remember Brother Ray” is a highly lauded tribute to his late friend and musical collaborator. 

In addition to mainstage performances by Newman and outstanding Twin Cities and national acts, the Twin Cities Jazz Society Big Band Stage will feature the Cedar Avenue Big Band with vocalist Debbie Duncan and the Youth Stage in the lounge will spotlight student groups and more.
