Hudson Valley Jazz Festival

  • Vanguard Jazz Orchestra

August 14-17. In a further example of overflow from our yearly June summer concert festival roundup is this growing jazz celebration founded in 2009 by Warwick drummer Steve Rubin. Held at various regional venues, this year's installment includes bassist Steve Swallow, drummer Adam Nussbaum, saxophonist and flutist Eric Person, keyboardists Pete Levin and Richard Kimball, and vocalists Judi Silvano and Gabriele Tranchina, among others. But the standout concert for 2014 is undoubtedly the August 16 engagement by the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra at the Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center. Founded in 1966 as the Thad Jones / Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra by trumpeter Thad Jones and drummer Mel Lewis, the hugely innovative outfit has included some of jazz's top players and is recognized as one of the most influential big bands of all time.
