This year, the Festival is dedicated to bassist Mario Pavone, one of the founding members of Litchfield Jazz Festival & Camp. The Festival also celebrates 20 years of top jazz instruction by it's teaching arm, Litchfield Jazz Camp. We have selected a roster of ultra talented young musicians, players who have been a part of Litchfield Jazz Camp, to grace our Mainstage alongside mentors who helped them grow as musicians. Some of these pairings will surprise you. All will delight you.
The Litchfield Jazz Festival continues a time honored tradition of showcasing jazz legends and fostering up-and-coming talent that has been in place since our first festival in 1996. "Nothing beats the Litchfield Jazz Festival…an ongoing tradition for those in the know." Since 1996 - JazzImprov.
