    Some Cinematic Orchestra and Sharon Jones are about as close as you're going to get methinks...

    Granted, this is off the top of my head. Anyone else care to chime in?

    EDIT: Also, the Bird & The Bee... good stuff! Get there early!

    Sharon Jones is the closest to jazz even though she is more R and B. But I know they probably will have some sort of jazz singer in one of the lounges in the bigger hotels in Palm Springs. Just go and watch a couple songs Thursday night and you'll be done!

    Maceo Parker might be playing with Prince so you could always lie and say he was there even if he wasn't. He's a very famous funk/jazz/soul saxophonist who worked with James Brown and the Parliament Funkadelic.

    Maybe Prince will go into one of his jazz tirades.

    You might also want to check out Battles -- they have a jazz pedigre and a sort of prog rock/free jazz sound.

    You should write your paper on Prince, and if your teacher gives you shit for it, then he's dumb. Check out Prince's "Musicology." That shit is jazz. Also, read what that other guy said re: Maceo Parker. He's a Legend too.

    From what I understand, neither Maceo, Candy Dulfer or Mike Phillips will be with Prince on Saturday. This is a bummer. Maceo is a headliner at the European jazz festivals like Montreaux.
