The bulk of the massive event (which is in its 35th year) is taking place in Piedmont Park May 26-28, and tons of big-name talent is slated to take the stage; keep your eyes and ears peeled for folks like Tito Puente Jr., Cyrus Chestnut, Kathleen Bertrand, Russell Gunn, Mausiki Scales and the Common Ground Collective, the Robert Glasper Experiment, Roy Ayers and many, many more.
