Discovering Jazz.

Posted By on Wed, Apr 12, 2006 at 1:38 PM

Just got back from the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival press conference. The lineup is pretty decent.

Half the meeting was spent naming sponsors, though. But it has to be done, otherwise no music.

Etta James was booked, but had to cancel due to illness.

Here's the heavy-hitters:

All shows Flynn MainStage, unless noted.

Ahmad Jamal with VT All State Jazz Ensemble. Friday, June 2.

Diane Reeves with the Joe Davidian Trio. Saturday, June 4.

The return of Kilmanjaro (Paul Asbell, Chas Eller, et. al) City Hall Auditorium Wednesday, June 7.

Maceo Parker (waterfront blues tent)

World Sax Quartet plays Hendrix. Also on bill: Vernon Reid & MasqueFriday, June 9.

Spanish Harlem Orchestra. Saturday, June 10.

As usual, there's some feisty shows in the FlynnSpace and other venues around town, as well as free Church Street performances.

Jazz it up, yo.
