The eighth annual Hudson Valley Jazz Festival is set for Aug. 17-20.

The featured show brings local artists Jeff Ciampa of Warwick and Pete Levin and Woodstock together with ex-Miles Davis and Return to Forever drummer Lenny White, saxophonist Alex Foster from Saturday Nite Live and Ira Coleman, formerly with Tony Williams.

Shows take place in an outdoor courtyard, B&B, cafes, clubs, restaurants, community centers, organic farms, art workshop spaces and housing development performance rooms.

Most shows are free, and those with a fee are modestly priced.
