Some of the top acts who performed throughout the successful 'Jazz in the Gardens' concert series will return for a grand finale as the curtains come down on the year-long musical extravaganza on Sunday, December 27 at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel.

Dubbed 'The Best of Jazz in the Gardens', the performers who will be ending the year on a high note are the extraordinary talents of the dynamic songstress Diamara Neil, who received a standing ovation during her last performance; Jabez; Rojjah; Karen Smith and violinist/keyboardist par excellence, Jon Williams. Providing musical direction for the show will be Desi Jones and his accomplished musician friends.

The concert is endorsed by sponsors Power 106/Music 99 and Kool 97 FM, with co-sponsor Clear Sound Productions and The Jamaica Pegasus hotel.

"We invited our patrons to vote for one artiste from each show who they would like to see return for our final event. It was difficult to just choose one from each show, but we answered their call and came up with a fine set of dynamic and energetic performers for our final show," says executive producer Nancy McLean.

Patrons will enjoy refreshing beverages and other goodies, courtesy of sponsors O'Jays Premium.

The cost of the tickets for 'Jazz in the Gardens... A Feast for the Senses' are $2,500 presold and $3,000 at the gate and will be available at Supermed Mall Pharmacy, Mall Plaza, and at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel between Thursday, December 24 to Sunday, December 27.

The Jazz in the Gardens series will continue to support its two favourite charities - the Best Care Foundation and Elsie Bernard Home for Girls.
