The Jazz Cruise lineups are comprised of Performing Groups, The Jazz Cruise Leaders and Musicians who perform as members of Anita’s Big Band and in All-Star settings. With sidemen, the Performing Groups account for nearly 65 jazz musicians. There are roughly 10 more outstanding artists who serve as The Jazz Cruise Leaders. The remaining 25 musicians are Big Band members and All-Stars.

As of now, we are excited to announce the many amazing Performing Groups who are scheduled to appear on The Jazz Cruise ’23. The leaders of each Performing Group are listed below. As for The Jazz Cruise Leaders, that list (again below) is probably complete at this time.
