August 6-9. Presented by the Catskill Jazz Factory in conjunction with the 23A Arts Initiative, this appetizing series kicks off at Bard College's Spiegeltent with "Harlem on the Hudson"—an evening curated by bassist Rodney Jordan that organizers say will be "in the style of the classic [1940s] Minton's Playhouse sessions." The series' subsequent "Harlem on the Mountaintop Experience" sessions will be held at the Last Chance Tavern and the Catskill Mountain Foundation's Orpheum Film and Performing Arts Center and will be highlighted by a master class and a performance by piano great Marcus Roberts and his trio. Other acts slated to appear are Walking Distance, the Benny Benack III Quartet, and the Charenee Wade / Chris Pattishall Quartet. Check website for schedule and ticket prices. Annandale-on-Hudson and Tannersville. (518) 628-4424; Catskilljazzfactory.org.
