Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival turns 40 this year.
The annual showcase of jazz, blues, rock and soul is held at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs.
The line-up will include several artists including Chaka Khan, the Gipsy Kings, Jean-Luc Ponty, and Dee-Dee Bridgewater.
Bridgewater, a Grammy and Tony award-winner, performed at the first Saratoga Jazz Festival in 1978. In June she will visit the festival for the sixth time, shortly after the release of a new album and recognition as a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master.
