An NCPA Presentation

The NCPA International Jazz Festival is back and this time it’s even bigger with four international artistes performing over three nights. Thilo Wolf, who performed at the festival last year, is coming back with his big band. This edition of the NCPA International Jazz Festival features a spectacular line-up of Grammy and Emmy-nominated musicians from across the world coming together to create some fine jazz.

This year’s line-up at the NCPA International Jazz Festival features:

Emmet Cohen featuring Benny Benack III – Pianist Emmet Cohen brings his award-winning world-renowned band and trumpeter/vocalist Benny Benack III to Mumbai for a special performance at the NCPA International Jazz Festival. These musicians will be honouring “Jazz’s Greatest Showman” and virtuosic artistes who knew how to perform and engage with their audience at the highest level. Benack brings a fun, energetic flare to any musical proceedings and croons favorites by Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett as well as trumpet repertoires plucked from the songbooks of Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie. For his part, Cohen’s repertoire spans the entirety of the history of jazz piano, from Fats Waller to Oscar Peterson and Thelonious Monk and everything in between.


Emmet Cohen is the winner of the 2019 American Pianists Awards.
