VAIL, Colorado – The Vail Jazz Foundation presents the Rick Weingarten Trio free in concert from noon to 3:30 p.m. Sunday at the Vail Farmers Market.

The concert will be at the Vail Jazz Festival stage outside Annie’s on Meadow Drive.

The trio features Rick Weingarten on vibraphone, Scott Mattson on drums and Bill Stephens on piano. With a unique jazz sound built on the warm tones of the vibraphone, the trio carries on a swinging jazz tradition harking back almost 80 years to Louis Armstrong and Lionel Hampton, organizers say.

“We love playing in Vail,” said Rick Weingarten. “The market has great energy – folks are happy to just enjoy a beautiful day outdoors, and the music we play just makes it that much more special for everyone.”

Since 1990, Rick and the The Good Vibes Trio have performed at many festivals, including the Westcliffe Jazz Festival, The Peoples Fair, Taste of Colorado, Boulder Creek Festival, Cherry Creek Arts Festival and The Vail Jazz Festival. The group has recorded and performed two live shows for KUVO, Denver’s Jazz station and has been the opening act for the Don Byron Quintet and The Maynard Ferguson Big Band.
