Hudson Valley Jazz Fest 2017The 8th annual Hudson Valley Jazz Festival is set for Aug 17-20. It's broad reaching in its geography and style. From traditional to gypsy jazz, modern, be-bop, acoustic and funky electric.

More details from Hudson Valley Jazz Festival (www.hudsonvalleyjazzfest.org):

Featured show brings local artists Jeff Ciampa of Warwick and Pete Levin and Woodstock together with ex-Miles Davis and Return to Forever drummer Lenny White, saxophonist Alex Foster from Sat. Nite live and Ira Coleman, formerly with Tony Williams.

But the continued thrust of this series is to highlight the great many Hudson Valley local artists who's talent in many cases is on par with these marque name jazz musicians. Warwick, Newburgh, Nyack, Greenwood Lake, Chester, Goshen, Peekskill and SugarLoaf all participate.

Shows take place in an outdoor courtyard, B&B, cafes, clubs, restaurants, community centers, organic farms, art workshop spaces and housing development performance rooms.

Most shows are free, those with a fee are modestly priced.
