2022 Burlington Discover Jazz Festival

Entheos Trio with Stacy Dillard

Church Street in front of City Hall


James Harvey is a Vermont legend. Coming from a dairy farm in Duxbury, he studied briefly at New England Conservatory and the Creative Music Studio. Harvey went on to work with a wide variety of musicians, including Don Cherry, Cecil Taylor, Jaki Byard, Professor Longhair, DJ Logic, and Tim Berne. He had a long association with composer Peter Apfelbaum and the highly acclaimed Hieroglyphics Ensemble, appearing on three albums with the group. He returned to Vermont for a few years in the 1980s, where his work with the H-Mob and other bands was a major impetus behind the first Burlington Discover Jazz Festival. He is also the subject of a film by Alison Segar called James Harvey: A Master at Play.
