New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Filoli today announced a one-of-a-kind lineup for its 2018 Jazz Series, featuring highly-acclaimed and legendary jazz musicians from the likes of Quincy Jones Presents Justin Kauflin to Tuck & Patti.

Filoli's annual Jazz Series has been showcasing world-renowned jazz masters and top talent since 1990. This year, in honor of its 28th consecutive season, Filoli is introducing a must-see lineup of musicians for its six Sunday afternoon jazz concerts. The series will kick off with Quincy Jones Presents Justin Kauflin on Sunday, June 17th and will take place on select Sundays through September 16th, with showtimes from 1:30PM to 4:00PM.

For each concert, guests are invited to enjoy an afternoon of live outdoor music underneath the historic estate's remarkable oak trees on the Woodland Garden Court with complimentary snacks and refreshing beverages. Concert attendees also have the option to order a boxed lunch in advance, bring their own picnic lunch, or visit the Quail's Nest Cafe for take-away items the day of the concert.

With years of work and dedication, Kauflin has become a piano extraordinaire and undeniable rare talent.
