Caramoor Jazz Festival

Jazz Aficionado or just Jazz Curious — if you love live music, this Jazz Festival is for you! The day begins with a must- see performance for the whole family by 12-year-old piano sensation Emily Bear and her trio. Next, Emily and jazz master John Beasley lead a very special jam session with an elite group of hand-picked musicians from the exciting and competitive world of New York’s best institutions of mu- sic. Trombonist Steve Turre pays tribute, through discussion and performance, to departed jazz trombone legend JJ Johnson, John Beasley presents a fabulous set of the music of Thelonious Monk, and Pianist Renee Rosnes offers a robust conversation about and performance of the enduring music of tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson. After an hour-long dinner break, Arturo O’Farrill and his Grammy® award winning Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra will bring the energy and full sonority of Sonidos Latinos back to the Caramoor Jazz Festival to close out the day.
