Jazz Winterfest: Weekend Lineup a Mix of Styles [VIDEOS]

Here's a look at this weekend's acts.

Coming from last weekend's blizzard, we'd be pretty surprised if Riverhead locals or other out-of-towners hoping to shake off their cabin fevers don't go looking for something fun to do.

Or some good music, for that matter.

Here's a look at this weekend's lineup at the Long Island Winterfest Jazz on the Vine festival, with the full schedule below of the perfomances taking place in various wineries. Each artist seems to have a unique style.

Bakithi Kumalo - South African bassist who played with Paul Simon, Gloria Estefan, Chaka Kahn, among others. All styles.

Spherical Flamenco Jazz Trio - Think about it, Flamenco jazz. It's toe-tapping and finger snapping at the same time. Ole.

Mike Engle Vibratrio - Vibraphone-led trios are just too cool, there's something quite etherial about those bell-like tones, especially when it's the lead voice.

Monday Michiru - Songstress, style pretty much at the border of pop and vocal-driven smooth jazz.

Pearl Street Band - Jazz, Blues, Rock, Soul band, vocals and instrumentals. Covers.

Amina Figarova - European jazz Composer and pianist, genre dubbed. Music is intricate, intellectual and improvisation-driven.

Morris Goldberg and Ojoyo - Fusion of world music and jazz, highly rooted in African music.

Matt Marshak Band - Smooth jazz. Marshak has become a local staple.

Jack Morelli Trio - Swinging, traditional piano jazz trio.

Adam Kromelow Trio - Modern piano jazz trio, plays a lot of original compositions, mix of styles. Innovative.

Natalie Fernandez Quartet - We challenge you find a style more crammed with heart and passion than tango.

Richie Siegler Latin Jazz - Name says it all. Latin jazz. Fiery and up-beat.

Joseph Carter III Group - Guitar jazz on the edge of smooth jazz. Soulful and cool.
