s.helary [at]

The 2011 Litchfield Jazz Festival is going down August 5th, 6th, and 7th at the Kent School, in Kent, Connecticut. Make sure to check it out if you’re in the area. This year, the festival is offering a $10 student discounts on all tickets (ranging from $22 1-day Lawn Passes to $350 3-day VIP Passes) for those 25 or younger with a valid student ID.

This edition has a really cool line-up which includes The Clayton Brothers (John Clayton, Jeff Clayton, Gerald Clayton, Obed Calvaire & Terell Stafford) and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue on August 5th. The following day, you won’t want to miss the Vijay Iyer Trio (Stephan Crump & Marcus Gilmore) as well as Roy Haynes’ Fountain of Youth Band (Jaleel Shaw, Martin Bejerano & David Wong). And the last day of the festival is especially stacked with the Dr. Lonnie Smith Trio (Jonathan Kreisberg & Jamire Williams), the Matt Wilson Quartet plus Strings, the Joe Lovano Nonet and the Jimmy Heath Big Band. Man, wish I could be there…
