Aug 9-12 will be the 9th season for The Hudson Valley Jazz Festival.

Initiated in Warwick, this yearly 4 day series quickly transitioned into the greater Hudson Valley and Westchester.

Covered by The NY Times, DownBeat, JazzTimes and other local media it has earned it's place amongst the valley's summer offerings.

Dave Liebman, The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Wallace Roney, Arturo O'farrill and John Abercrombie has all performed but the mission of this festival is to highlight the region's deep resource of local jazz talent.

The focus are shows taking place in varied environments presenting everything from big band to gypsy jazz, fusion, bop, cool jazz and an array of vocalists. Each season the festival brings artists in who haven't appeared while the public gets to hear some of their returning favorites. What distinguished this festival from many other music festivals is that the goal is to raise the profile of the participating musicians from the valley and helping to define the community as a destination for live jazz.

To date since it's inception, The Hudson Valley Jazz Festival has presented 131 performances from Kingston to Montgomery, Greenwood Lake, Peekskill, Pine Island, Croton on Hudson, Warwick to Chester and SugarLoaf.

Most shows are free and those with admission or minimum are very reasonably priced.
As of this writing 16 shows are scheduled, Thurs - Sun. Aug 9 -12 with the full schedule, artist and venue information at www.hudsonvalleyjazzfest.org
