Hear the best in jazz

The 8th annual TD James Moody Jazz Festival presents dozens of free and ticketed events, including a triple bill of Steps Ahead, Michael Franks and Spyro Gyra and starry salutes to the music of Erroll Garner and Nat King Cole.

Experience the brilliance of guitarist Lee Ritenour and his special guests, and the incomparable Houston Person over brunch at Dorthaan’s Place. As always, the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition closes this amazing festival.
