20th Anniversary Caramoor Jazz Festival: Freedom. The Lifeblood of Jazz.


Sunday, July 28, 2013
2:00 pm - 7:00 pm



Featuring Mingus Big Band; James Carter Organ Trio; Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet; Lionel Loueke Trio; and Elio Villafranca & The Jass Syncopators

At twenty, we pose the question, “What is the Universal Golden Key for jazz musicians?” It is experiencing and expressing – in the present moment – an urgent, spiritual purpose and freedom, and sharing it with you, the appreciative listener.

During the Jazz Festival, we proudly present musicians that possess that Golden Key: Souza, Marsalis, Carter, Tolliver, Iyer, Loueke, and Makowicz, to name a few. And we revisit the tremendous work of Charles Mingus 50 years ago – in 1963 – when he was in top creative form as composer, musician and bandleader.

Ride the Caramoor Caravan round-trip from NYC! Only for Jazz – Great Performances will offer a variety of grilled items in addition to their sandwiches at the concession stands.
