Since 1993 the Caramoor Jazz Festival has presented hundreds of the finest jazz musicians from superstars to emerging artists, from big bands to solo pianists, in an eclectic mix featuring unique combinations of artists in true Festival style. At twenty, we pose the question “What is the Universal Golden Key for jazz musicians?” It is experiencing and expressing - in the present moment - an urgent, spiritual purpose and freedom, and sharing it with you, the appreciative listener.
During the Jazz Festival, we proudly present musicians that possess that Golden Key: Souza, Marsalis, Carter, Tolliver, Iyer, Loueke, and Makowicz, to name a few. And we revisit the tremendous work of Charles Mingus 50 years ago - in 1963 - when he was in top creative form as composer, musician and bandleader.
Celebrate with us—20 years of Caramoor Jazz!
