Straight-Ahead Jazz Takes to the Seas Again in November '08

So, you like your jazz straight-no chaser? Do you like the idea cruising on the Atlantic to the sounds of great traditional jazz being played by some of the best in the business? Have you ever experienced such a treat? Well, whether you have or not, the chance is here again as The Jazz Cruise, a bevy of giants congregating on board Holland America’s m/s Westerdam, courtesy of Jazz Cruises LLC (the heavyweight of jazz cruise sponsors), launches its 8th annual blockbuster. The cruise sets sail from November 9 16, 2008, with the likes of (and there are just too many greats to name them all here) the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, the Tom Scott Quintet with Shelly Berg, Joe Ascione, the Benny Green Trio, Wycliffe Gordon, Henry Johnson, the Johnny O’Neal Trio, the Regina Carter Quintet, Laura McDonald, and Tom Kennedy. There is a whole host of names omitted here in the interest of brevity! This is not a lineup that true traditional jazz aficionados will want to forego! Add to that the beautiful ports of call (Key West, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, and Belize), and you’ve got the makings of one great experience.

For the first-time cruiser, Jazz Cruises, LLC is a major heavyweight in the arena of jazz cruises, offering you the perfect venue for every type of experience expected from such a stylish genre. For The Jazz Cruise (only one of many sponsored by Jazz Cruises, LLC, by the way), the choice of the spacious Holland America as the full-charter vessel (that’s right, just for the jazzers) to smoothly transport you along the sun-kissed Atlantic, the scrumptious food all around the clock, the ambience, and the interaction with fellow jazzers all place this head and shoulders above the conventional cruise experience. The challenge: See if you can honestly set foot on land after this adventure-at-sea and not seriously consider rebooking for the following year!

For those familiar with Jazz Cruises, LLC and its commitment to the ultimate in your jazz experience and enjoyment, we need say no more---except perhaps: When did you book your cabin?

Come sail for a week with some of the finest acts in the business, have a chat on the lido deck strolling along with one of them, take full advantage of the ship’s amenities, and, of course, catch the amazing performances held in the coziest of plush lounges This is how to spend a memorable vacation!
