Mike Vax plays his annual preview for the Prescott Jazz Summit.
Former Stan Kenton Orchestra first trumpeter, soloist and road manager Mike Vax will once again play for the July Jazz in AZ party as a prelude to the Prescott Jazz Summit in August. The sextet features Vax's long-time band mate Jack Petersen on guitar, along with his regular local band members Tony Vacca-sax, Joel Robin-piano, Ted Sistrunk-bass and Cleve Huff-drums.
Vax always pleases the audience with his friendly and engaging manner. And the choice of music is also satisfying and swinging. Don't miss this taste of the music to be featured in cool Prescott pines on Aug. 23-25.
Admission: $15 general, $12 seniors, $10 JiA members (free, lifetime members), $5 students with ID, free under age 12
This party will be preceded by the Jazz in AZ Annual Meeting at 2:15 p.m., which is an informational meeting. Members and the public are welcome to attend.
