New festival elements this year include Cross the Tracks, a strand that throws the spotlight on contemporary, underground music influenced by jazz.
Participating artists include Hidden Orchestra, Submotion Orchestra and Ghostpoet.
The Tron Kirk will also transform into a new festival hub, a club that will open at 10:00 and run through to late evening - with performers from contemporary to vintage jazz.
Brian Fallon, chairman of the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival, said: "We're bringing back the energy and feeling of a real festival, concentrated and fun."
The festival will feature 146 concerts, performers from six continents and live music over 10 days.
