VAIL – The Vail Jazz Festival presents two free performances Sunday in Vail as part of the popular Jazz at The Market and Jazz at Kelly Liken series.

In partnership with the Vail Farmer’s Market and Art Show, Jazz at The Market is held each Sunday in the Jazz Tent at Solaris. The performances take place from Noon to 3 p.m. and this week features the straight-ahead and modern jazz of the Chuck Lamb Trio.

On Sunday, the Tony Gulizia Trio will perform with jazz guitarist and vocalist Justin Allison at restaurant Kelly Liken for Jazz at Kelly Liken. The summer-long series compliments Liken’s Sunday Harvest dinners. Reservations are recommended. Allison will again be featured this summer on Aug. 5 at Jazz at The Market in the Justin Allison Trio.

With 40 performances from June 24 through Sept. 3, the 18th annual Vail Jazz Festival presents headliners such as Marcia Ball, Byron Stripling, the Jeff Hamilton Trio and the Junior Mance Trio in a variety of ticketed and free events in intimate indoor and unique outdoor venues throughout Vail. Featuring diverse jazz genres from straight-ahead and Latin, to swing and the Great American Songbook, the Festival culminates with the Labor Day Vail Jazz Party featuring more than 30 hours of music in a five-day celebration of jazz.
