Winter Park, Colo. – Today, the Winter Park & Fraser Chamber announced the dates, lineup and ticket sales information for the 33rd Annual Winter Park Jazz Festival, part of the Odell Brewing Concert Series, presented by Colorado Access and Real Estate of Winter Park, to be held in Hideaway Park, located in downtown Winter Park, on July 18-19.
The headliner for the Saturday, July 18 performance is an 11-time Grammy winner with 11 solo albums of his own – Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds. In modern pop music history few creative forces have been more seminal or impacted the contemporary pop/urban genres as much as Edmonds. In a relatively short time he has reached icon status as a poignant tune smith, prolific hit maker/producer, superstar recording artist, and revolutionary label owner.
The Sunday, July 19 headliner is Morris Day & The Time. Morris Day burst onto the public scene with the group’s self-titled album, The Time, which included “Get It Up,” “Cool,” and “Girl.” Soon after the world was introduced to the former Prince band member and music marvel, the group went on to record three more albums, including What Time Is It? and Ice Cream Castle. The later album, the group’s most popular, is best remembered for the infectious singles “Jungle Love” and the Rufus Thomas-influenced, “The Bird.” With their palpable pop energy and catchy choruses, the songs were hits on both urban and pop radio.
