<b>Reserve Thursdays for world-class jazz</b><b>  - </b><b>Tickets for this summer’s Jazz @ Vail Square series on sale April 15</b>

There’s no mistaking the whiff of opportunity in the air on Thursday evenings – and it smells distinctively like world-class jazz music.

Beginning April 15, tickets are on sale for this summer’s Thursday night Jazz @ Vail Square concert series. Celebrating the 20<sup>th</sup> anniversary of the Vail Jazz Festival, the Thursday concerts offer a lineup more stacked with A-list artists than ever before.

New this year, Jazz @ Vail Square offers two-tiered pricing for seating under the tent. General Admission tickets are $15 per show or $30 for VIP seating, which includes priority seating, access to the VIP lounge area and a drink voucher. Information available at <a href="http://vailjazz.org/" target="_blank">vailjazz.org</a> or 888-VAILJAM. Passes for the nine-performance series are also available.

<b>July 3:</b>

Kicking things off at Vail Square, guitar virtuoso duo Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo return with their quick-fingered, quick-witted performance covering everything from jazz classics to rock hits, all with a humorous flair.

<b>July 10:</b>

Also returning by popular demand, the foot-stomping, dance-inspiring rhythms of conga drumming sensation Poncho Sanchez and his Latin Jazz Band.

<b>July 17:</b>

Young singer and jazz pianist Tony DeSare hits the stage with energy described to lie somewhere between that of Harry Connick Jr. and Billy Joel. He’s one of the hottest up-and-comers in jazz at the moment and plays Vail for the first time.

<b>July 24:</b>

Long-time Vail Jazz favorite and world-renowned pianist Marcia Ball returns with New Orleans-infused, feel-good melodies. See why they call her “saucy.”

<b>July 31:</b>

When a New Orleans brass band collides with the strains of Eastern Indian horns and percussion in the form of a large but harmonious ensemble, it looks and sounds something like Red Baraat. Also likely to instigate some dancing.

<b>Aug. 7:</b>

Jamaica’s one and only Monty Alexander brings his addictive jazz piano and the classic grooves of a full band, the Harlem-Kingston Express, from their usual setup at New York City’s Lincoln Center to those lucky to witness the experience in the tent at Vail Square.

<b>Aug. 14:</b>

Guitarist/vocalist John Pizzarelli returns for a rich and riveting performance along with his quartet, including brother Martin on bass.

<b>Aug. 21:</b>

Expect to dance. Swing-style. Very special artist TBA

<b>Aug. 28:</b>

It’s a triple bill for the series’ grand finale. Resident favorites, The Vail Jazz Party House Band wrap up Jazz @ Vail Square with a white-hot performance preceded by the nation’s top lineup of teenage protégés, the Vail Jazz All-Stars and also the now-famous All-Star alums. The performance, while closing the Thursday night series, kicks off the 20<sup>th</sup> annual Vail Jazz Party.
