Pianist Geri Allen passed away last summer at the tender age of 60. She left a big void, but also a legacy. Geri was set to return to the festival this summer in a concert with saxophonist Ravi Coltrane. Now, Ravi will perform a tribute to her with the peerless bassist Dave Holland and genre-bending drummer Terri Lyne Carrington – both veterans of Geri’s past bands. To these people Geri Allen was a guide, a follower, and a sister. To them, and to this festival, she will always be alive. The opening band will be the winner of the 2018 Student Jazz Combo Competition.
