The Winter Jazzfest is one of the highlights of NYC's music calendar. Here's our guide to the best events. But don't stop there: we've also included a complete listing of shows, with links to tickets, on the app. Check it out, shoot events to friends and keep in touch while you're out with the event-specific chat.
The marathons are always the highlight of the festival. Tons of venues, tons of acts, one price. It's amazing, if a bit confusing. Check out our rec's below (full lineup at each venue on the app).

There aren't many prime-aged musicians in jazz that are more innovative than Mark Guilana and he's all over this festival (including during the marathons above). We first saw him with Brad Mehldau at Blue Note a few years ago and he blew us away. It'd be a shame not to see him at least once.
The rest of the festival
So, the above is what we'll be heading to, but there's a bunch more cool stuff going on. See all of the other separately ticketed events below.
