The Boston Symphony Orchestra has announced the addition of jazz  
pianist, Renee
Rosnes, to the 2007 Tanglewood Jazz Festival lineup.  Ms. Rosnes will  
be the

Canadian pianist and composer Renee Rosnes has earned major  
international
acclaim since she first relocated from Vancouver to New York City in  
1986.
Having toured and recorded with many of the greatest masters, her  
resume reads
like a who's who of jazz including work with Joe Henderson, JJ  
Johnson, Wayne
Shorter, the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, James Moody, and Bobby  
Hutcherson, among
others. Ms. Rosnes has released a series of nine musically imaginative
recordings on the Blue Note label, which have garnered four Juno  
Awards. She is
also a founding member of the San Francisco Jazz Collective, an all- 
star octet
currently featuring saxophonist Joe Lovano and trumpeter Dave Douglas.

Returning again this year is the popular Jazz Cafe, an informal,  
cabaret style
venue that features new up-and-coming talent.  This year's artists in  
the Jazz
Cafe are Italian vocalist, song writer and pianist, Chiara Civello;  
New York
based vocalist, songwriter, and bandleader, Sachal Vasandani; Cuban  
pianist and
Berklee College of Music graduate, Aruan Ortiz; Boston-based  
saxophonist, Grace
Kelly; Colombian jazz harpist, Edmar Casteneda; and French jazz  
vocalist, Mina
Agossi.

This year for the first time, an all-day lawn pass for Saturday and  
Sunday will
be available for $33 per day.

The full lineup includes Kurt Elling, Randy Crawford and Joe Sample,  
the Poncho
Sanchez Latin Jazz Band, Hank Jones, Roberta Gambarini, Ahmad Jamal,  
Jimmy
Heath, Hugh Masekela, Kevin Mahogany, Red Holloway, Cyrus Chestnut,
