Caramoor International Music Festival’s annual weekend-long Jazz Festival has become a premiere destination for jazz music for artists and fans alike. The 2012 Jazz Festival – July 28 and 29 – welcomes some of the industry’s brightest talents and celebrated chart-toppers, demonstrating the breadth and diversity of the state of jazz.

On Saturday, the festival kicks off with Hard Bop icons Billy Harper and continues with a solo set of lyrical jazz by pianist Kenny Barron, followed by the rising star vocalist Gretchen Parlato in the Venetian Theater. Later in the evening, three-time Grammy® Award-winner Dee Dee Bridgewater will entertain the audience with a concert highlighting the different trends in jazz singing. As a dominant force on the jazz scene for several decades, legendary Roy Haynes will close the evening with his newly formed Roy Haynes Fountain of Youth Band, featuring some of today’s most dynamic and virtuosic musicians.

Sunday brings 19 time-Grammy Award-winner Pat Metheny to the stage with the Pat Metheny Unity Band featuring Monk Competition winner, bassist Ben Williams, Grammy® nominated saxophonist Chris Potter, and longtime collaborator and drummer Antonio Sanchez to round out the festival.
