Founded in 2003, Jazz on the Greens is a signature event for jazz in Trinidad. Each year, this festival-styled jazz event takes place on the beautiful and lush Greens at Farm Road in St-Joseph. World-class regional and local talent in a relaxed jazz picnic ambiance combine to create the ultimate jazz experience. "Come for the lime…Discover the music!" continues to resonate as a stamp of approval as patrons will again be entertained by some of the best talent in the industry.
In 2019, the cast of regional artists are Cuban pianist and singer Janysett McPherson celebrating the Latin American influence in the jazz; contemporary jazz guitarist and Caribbean jazz icon Ronald 'Boo' Hinkson from St Lucia; steelpan jazz virtuoso Leon Foster Thomas from Trinidad and Tobago along with local supporting acts, the EFX The Band (Emile Fortune Xperiment) and the Holistic Music School Orchestra. Exocubs Steel Orchestra will play on the Greens for arriving patrons. This mix of Creole and contemporary jazz, smooth jazz and sonic improvised experiments that utilise the best of local music and original music creates an atmosphere that complements the experience of a jazz picnic with opportunities for music and merchandise purchase, for food and beverage product and service executions and for fun.
