2021 Burlington Discover Jazz Festival

High Summer

Church Street in front of City Hall


High Summer’s sound is a visceral groove—original compositions punctuated by well-curated covers that highlight the group’s dynamic musical exploration over a deep-pocket rhythmic foundation, borne from years of collaboration in some of Vermont’s finest bands. Strong horns layer under sultry vocals, with rich melodies of keys and strings built over a rock-solid rhythm section. This deep-groove outfit is composed of long-time members of the Burlington musical community, who are current or former members of groups such as Steady Betty, Afinque, Michelle Sarah Band, Mal Maiz, Japhy Ryder, Myra Flynn’s FLYNN, Barika, Bearquarium, and many others.
