Good morning jazz lovers!

We thought you’d like to know about some very special shows coming to Chautauqua. From jazz standards and big bands to genre-bending sounds, there is something for everyone.

Peter & Will Anderson play Benny Goodman – May 12

Direct from Lincoln Center, Peter and Will Anderson are one of the most extraordinary sibling teams performing music today. Hailing from Washington, DC, they were selected internationally for Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead, the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra and NFAA Young Arts Program. The twins attended Juilliard and have appeared with the Jimmy Heath Big Band, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra and Bob Wilber Sextet.

Their ensemble has performed in over 30 U.S. States, toured Japan, and featured four times in New York City’s famed “Highlights in Jazz” series, alongside legends Lou Donaldson, Paquito D’Rivera and Wycliffe Gordon.

Playing in the intimate Chautauqua Community House, Peter and Will will be joined by Julliard guitarist Alex Wintz for an evening of Benny Goodman jazz. Thursday, May 12. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.

Gregory Porter – June 12

2015 Jazz FM International Jazz Artist of the Year and winner of the 2014 Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album, “Liquid Spirit,” Gregory Porter is an artist whose music is at once timeless yet utterly of its time. Gregory Porter will solidify his standing as his generation’s most soulful jazz singer-songwriter with the May 6 release of “Take Me to the Alley,” the much-anticipated follow-up to his million-selling Grammy-winning debut. A digital download of “Take Me to the Alley,” is included with every ticket ordered for this show. Have a first listen of Gregory’s new album on NPR here. Venus Cruz will open tonight’s show. Sunday, June 12. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua  Auditorium. Buy tickets online.

Joey Alexander – September 9

An extraordinary and uniquely gifted pianist from Bali, Joey Alexander’s recording debut “My Favorite Things” was nominated as Best Instrumental Jazz Album for the 2016 Grammy Awards. His track “Giant Steps” also earned a 2016 Grammy nomination for Best Improvised Jazz Solo making Joey, at 12 years old, one of the youngest Grammy nominees in history.

Joey Alexander taught himself to play piano by listening with his father to classic jazz albums and due to the lack of jazz education where he lives; Alexander began attending jam sessions with senior musicians. Through festival appearances and awards for his improvisational brilliance, the world has taken notice of this phenomenal and exciting pianist with the astonishing technique and soulful sound. Greg Harris Vibe Quintet will open tonight’s show. Friday, September 9. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua  Auditorium. Buy tickets online.

An Evening with Pat Metheny – September 21

Throughout his career, Pat Metheny has continued to redefine the genre by utilizing new technology and constantly working to evolve the improvisational and sonic potential of his instrument.

Metheny’s body of work includes compositions for solo guitar, small ensembles, electric and acoustic instruments, large orchestras, and ballet pieces and even the robotic instruments of his Orchestrion project, while always sidestepping the limits of any one genre.
