Put Up Your Duke Ellingtons, Your Jazz Hands, with the Lynn Seaton Trio 

March 21-22 at Boise State

The Gene Harris Jazz Festival is a two-day dip back in time when swing was king and the leaders of big band jazz groups like Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman were gold standards.

This year, audience members can experience the reunion of two friends who used to perform together on the New York City jazz scene, Lynn Seaton and Rich Perry. On Thursday, March 22, Perry will join the Lynn Seaton Trio on saxophone. Their set will bring together jazz standards while summoning original inspiration from Big Apple memories, where Perry is a major name in music.

The Gene Harris Jazz Festival is as much about showcasing national talent as it is supporting Treasure Valley legends-in-the-making--modern day artists who uphold jazz in our community, like the Boise Jazz Ensemble and the Boise Modern Jazz Orchestra, which will also perform.
