Jazz at Holmes sets summer series schedule

Although there's been no formal announcement yet, the Jazz at Holmes series of free concerts at Washington University apparently has set their schedule for this summer.

A recent update to their site (linked above) lists four concerts for July 2011, starting with a performance on Thursday, July 7 by Ritmo Caliente, "one of St. Louis' premier Latin Jazz groups fusing modern improvisation with Caribbean and Brazilian music."

The following Thursday, July 14, it will be the St. Louis Jazz Ensemble with Maurice Carnes playing "straightahead modern repertoire and original music. The ensemble rotates a roster of the best of St. Louis' jazz community."

Next up on Thursday, July 21 is a trio led by guitarist Brian Vaccaro (pictured), playing "modern sounds and music for the traditional instrumentation of guitar, bass and drums."

The Jazz at Holmes summer 2011 series will wrap up on Thursday, July 28 with The Poor People of Paris, "presenting traditional jazz along with European song."

All Jazz at Holmes concerts are free and open to the public, and begin at 8:00 p.m. in Holmes Lounge, which is located in Ridgley Hall, on the west side of Brookings Quadrangle near the intersection of Brookings and Hoyt drives.
