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 music. 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.
