Join an ecstatic audience at the renowned Harvest Jazz Festival at the Paul Masson Vineyards in California for a double bill concert sure to consume your soul.

Fronting his own quartet, Bobby Hutcherson performs a set that is simply brilliant. Being consumed and overtaken by the crowd's electricity, Bobby delivers a nearly 30-minute improvisational performance! As a stylist whose playing falls between hard bop and post-bop, this vibraphonist has worked with all the contemporary jazz greats and delivers a sensational and electric performance!

Influenced by both traditional Brazilian singers and the improvisations of American jazz divas such as Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, Flora Purim demonstrates her musical diversity with unique live performances including an improvisation with Airto Moreira.
