The Carolina Theatre, 309 West Morgan Street, Durham, NC 27701

The Monterey Jazz Festival will be coming to North Carolina on January 26th and it could prove to be a highlight for anyone who is staying in Durham around that time.

It was founded in 1958 and has since become the longest continuously-running jazz festival in the world, presenting nearly every major jazz star from Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong to Esperanza Spalding and Trombone Shorty.

This ground-breaking heritage will be continued in Durham when the all star band takes to the Carolina Theatre stage.

It consists of bassist and musical director Christian McBride, vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater, saxophonist Chris Potter, trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, pianist Benny Green and drummer Lewis Nash.

Tickets for the concert cost between $42.00 and $52.00.

It is easy to get to the Carolina Theatre for anyone staying at the Millennium Hotel Durham, as it is only four miles away.

The journey is a simple ten-minute drive along the North Carolina 147.
