2022 Burlington Discover Jazz Festival

High Summer

Schmanska Park


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, born 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, and many others.

  • Andric Severance (Myra Flynn's FLYNN), keyboards
  • Pat Ormiston (Japhy Ryder), bass guitar
  • Jason Thime (Japhy Ryder), drums
