The curators of the Telluride Jazz Festival use a very particular word to define their annual event—“celebration.” That joyful spirit permeates the three-day happening, which lauds the American art form by welcoming some of the jazz world’s brightest luminaries for performances in a stunning setting. Blue notes ring through a verdant field surrounded by the San Juan Mountains, providing a picturesque backdrop for audiences lounging in chairs or atop nature’s chair: grass. Sunshine gilds lively tunes throughout the day, while at night, visitors can explore additional sets at intimate venues throughout the town. A yearly parade brings the weekend to its jubilant peak as bands wind down Colorado Avenue toward the Town Park Stage.
