Vail Jazz @ Vail Square - Thursday, July 7 at 6pm.
Widely considered to be among the greatest trios in jazz (ever!), Monty Alexander (piano), John Clayton (bass), and Jeff Hamilton (drums) have delivered the most tastefully elegant, swinging, and soul-stirring jazz for 40 years, album after album, festival after festival, Grammy® after Grammy®. Playing together…and with other groups…these three dynamos have delighted Vail audiences for many years. Together, they deftly maneuver among swinging old favorites, creative new delights, Jamaican-inflected hymns & marches, and gorgeous ballads. Monty, John and Jeff make all their deliveries by First Class! For a special treat, focus on the way these three pros communicate with one another while playing. This is how jazz is done!
