On September 5, clarinetist/saxophonist Eddie Daniels and pianist Bob James will perform Broadway Boogie, a program of chamber jazz which will precede an appearance by the Count Basie Orchestra. On the evening of the 5th, the Festival will close with performances by the Julian Lage Group and pianist/composer, Donal Fox, who will offer a new program called Piazzolla to Bach.
