Photos by Francois Adrien

The 2007 Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival is looking for the best new jazz, blues and reggae talent to come and perform in Jamaica. In order to find the next Wynton Marsalis, BB King or Bob Marley, the Festival producers have organized FOUR Jazz Fest Quest talent competitions in Atlanta, New York, South Florida and Washington DC. Each Jazz Fest Quest has featured a one-night-only talent showcase in Florida; where top music industry judges along with the audience have selected JACKY & STRINGS as their first winner.

Each one-night showcase will feature some of the best undiscovered jazz, blues, Latin, and reggae musicians in the area with the best act winning an all-expenses paid trip to perform live in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Four independent entertainment industry experts along with media professionals served as judges for the Jazz Fest Quest, and with the audience serving as the fifth judge, the performers have to “do what it takes” to impress them and prove why they should be flying to Montego Bay and getting the chance of a lifetime to be discovered.

The competitors were: Sax player : Batie, Jody & Cleef Fried Fun, 3rd Lawrence Elder, 4TH Alana, 5TH Marlow, 6th Jacky & Strings and 7th, Sabor Latino
