Caramoor Jazz Festival
Saturday July 28, 2012
Roy Haynes has dominated the jazz scene for seven decades, appearing with everyone from Miles Davis and Charlie Parker to his new Fountain of Youth Band that includes some of today’s most dynamic and virtuosic musicians.
The evening opens with three-time Grammy award winner Dee Dee Bridgewater demonstrating why she continues to be one of the great jazz singers of our time. Recognized the world over as a master, Kenny Barron shares a solo set of his consummate and lyrical pianism. The young Gretchen Parlato demonstrates why she is one of the hottest voices on the jazz scene these days. Hard Bop icons Billy Harper and the Cookers open the day by taking us back to the hard-driving jazz of the mid-1960s.
