DETROIT (WXYZ) — The Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation announced Tuesday its lineup for the 40th Annual Festival presented by Quicken Loans.

This year’s theme is “reunion” hosting a return of phenomenal jazz artists and performers who have taken the Festival stage in the last 10 years.

“We’re really excited about the exceptional lineup we’ve assembled for the 40th year celebration which reflects a reunion of some of the most inspiring performers and performances we’ve had the pleasure of hosting over the last 10 years at the jazz festival,” said Chris Collins, president and artistic director of the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation. “From jazz legends to up-and-coming revolutionaries and Detroit Homecoming artists, these artists have become a part of our extended family and it’s only appropriate
