July 31-August 2
Telluride, CO

If you only think of the mountains of Colorado for winter skiing, you are surely missing out on the majestic beauty the hills have to offer in the summer. The flower-strewn landscape alone is worth the trip. But I digress; this is about the music! If you love jazz, don’t know much about jazz, or are on the fence about jazz, this festival should set the record straight once and for all. The genre encompasses classical to modern jazz and takes influences from Afro-Cuban, Brazilian and funk. Sounds like you’d be hard pressed to not find something you like.
