Vail Jazz at the Market: Dexter Payne Quintet
July 17, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Vail Jazz presents Vail Jazz at the Market. Taking place on Sundays throughout the summer from noon – 3 pm, delight yourself with jazz at the Solaris Terrace while enjoying the Vail Farmer’s Market. On July 17th, the Dexter Payne Quintet will perform. With a sound and style that instantly evokes musical pleasure backed by joyful ensemble playing, peppered with exciting, humorous solos, the quintet’s infectious sound ranges from traditional jazz to a samba-funk groove to a forró dance party. They delight their fans with classic improvised jazz interlaced with the vibrant romantic harmony and irresistible pulse of Brazil. Frontman Dexter Payne has played clarinet in 13 countries, on The Today Show, and Prairie Home Companion. Dexter, on clarinet, is joined by Bill Kopper, guitar, Dave Willey, accordion, Victor Mestas, keyboard, and Raoul Rossiter, drums/percussion.
