As usual, the Exit Zero Jazz Festival in Cape May has put together an impressive lineup for its fall 2021 edition, with Terence Blanchard, Chris Botti, Dee Dee Bridgewater, The Paquito D’Rivera Quintet, Robert Randolph and Jazzmeia Horn among the jazz, blues, R&B, rock and world music performers.

The festival will take place Oct. 1-3 on two stages at Ferry Park in North Cape May plus a Beach Stage at Cape May Convention Hall. There will also be nighttime shows at Carney’s on Beach Avenue featuring groups such as the High & Mighty Brass Band and Mimi & the Podd Brothers.

The biannual festival had to cancel in spring 2020 because of the pandemic, but took place at the Emlen Physick Estate and other outdoor locations in fall 2020, and then at Ferry Park, Convention Hall and other locations in spring 2021.
