Pianist Josh Nelson and his quintet make music at Filoli on July 22.
On Aug. 5, the Henry Solomon Quartet, featuring Roy McCurdy, perform; on Aug. 19 Tuck & Patti provide the music; and on Sept. 16, the Pacific Mambo Orchestra closes the series.
Portola Vineyards in Portola Valley also has a Sunday summer series that presents five shows between June 24 and Aug. 19. These feature the likes of the San Diego-based pianist Danny Green and his trio with strings, and local favorite Charged Particles, who close out the run in late August with an Eastside College Preparatory School benefit performance.
In between, there's Pamela Rose on July 15; Lunar Octet on July 29; and pianist Larry Vuckovich and his Jazz/Latin Quartet on Aug. 5.
Concerts begin at 6 p.m.
Stanford Jazz Festival
The dean of summer jazz is the Stanford Jazz Festival, which is in its 37th year and offers 31 concerts between June 22 and Aug. 4.
As has been the case in recent years, the Stanford Jazz Festival and Workshop features concerts at the front and back end of its season at Bing Concert Hall.
On June 23, Berkeley resident Joshua Redman leads a rare date with his veteran quartet that features pianist Aaron Goldberg, double bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Gregory Hutchinson.
The festival closes on Aug. 4 with Spanish trumpeter and vocalist Andrea Motis' quintet, playing first with trombonist Wycliffe Gordon as a special guest and then with the SJW 50/50 Orchestra, directed by Joan Chamorro.
Motis made her regional debut at last year's festival, and the fledgling SJW 50/50 Orchestra is a group made up of women and men in equal numbers.
Stanford Shopping Center Summer Jazz Series
Presented by SFJAZZ in the courtyard between Crate & Barrel and Nordstrom, the free Stanford Shopping Jazz Series is in its 32nd year. It starts on June 21 and is held on consecutive Thursdays at 6 p.m. through Aug. 23.
