“Jazz and wine are a beautiful combination that certainly appeals to all the senses,” explains Sam Kimball, founder of New York Wine Events, producers of the series. “We’re excited to bring renowned, internationally acclaimed musicians out to the North Fork. The intimate performance setting, award-wining wines, tasty food options, along with the wonderful atmosphere created by the staff of Jamesport Vineyards creates a one-of-a-kind summertime experience, both for the audience and artists alike.”
“We enjoy hosting the Jazz in the Vines series,” notes Ron Goerler, Jr. master winemaker and owner of Jamesport Vineyards. “These are cultural events that attract a sophisticated crowd that appreciates experiencing world-class musical acts in our vineyard setting. We’re look forward to this year’s shows and for guests to discover and enjoy our latest vintages.”
2018 Grammy® Award winner Jeff Lorber Fusion appears on August 11th. Trailblazing pianist, composer, producer and bandleader Jeff Lorber is a consummate artist who continues to push himself to new plateaus. A groundbreaking Fender Rhodes pioneer along with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Joe Sample and Bob James, Lorber is recognized as one of the most innovative musical minds in contemporary jazz. The multi Grammy-nominated pianist’s newest CD, “Prototype” (which garnered the 2018 Grammy® in 2018 in for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album), showcases Lorber’s expansive musical roots, masterfully crafted harmonic and melodic sophistication, finger-popping grooves, and intricate rhythmic sense.
The August 25th show marks an historic meeting of two contemporary jazz giants, Grammy® nominated pianist/composer/arranger David Benoit and guitarist/composer/producer Marc Antoine. For three decades, the two jazz icons have scored more than twenty-five #1 Smooth Jazz radio hits, sold over 2 million albums, and toured the world. “So Nice”, their new joint album is a perfect blending of the two artists’ instrumental styles, combining the cool grooves of Smooth Jazz with the exotic sensuosity of Brazilian music.
One of the fastest emerging contemporary jazz artists in recent history and a Jazz in the Vines fan favorite, Vincent Ingala returns to the Jamesport stage on September 1st along with top vocalist Lindsey Webster. A multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer known for his energetic performances, Ingala has enjoyed widespread popularity since his 2010 critically acclaimed debut album, “North End Soul.” In 2012, he was named Billboard Smooth Jazz Artist of the Year and dubbed Sirius XM Watercolors Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2013. Consistently hitting the charts, Ingala has amassed three #1 hits on the Billboard Smooth Jazz Chart and six singles in the Billboard Smooth Jazz Top 10. Named Billboard Contemporary Jazz Artist of the Year in 2016 and 2017, Lindsey Webster sings with a rich, soulful style has captivated a dedicated following that connects with the raw emotion she shares with them.
