The Vail Jazz Festival presents Veronica Swift on Thursday, August 16 at 6 pm at Vail Square. At just 23, Veronica’s style and vocal talent are way beyond her years, captivating unsuspecting audiences with American Songbook, bebop, and vocalese classics. Already recognized as one of today’s top young jazz singers, she first performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center when she was 11 and her first CD was recorded when she was just 9. Adding zest to the evening, noted pianist Emmet Cohen and his trio are on hand to provide creative & sensitive collaborations.
A recognized prodigy, Emmet Cohen possesses a fluid technique and innovative tonal palette that has led him to renowned jazz venues throughout the world. A great chance to become “early fans” of both of these impressive phenoms!
