WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Paul Bollenback Trio played under the shade of a spreading horse chestnut tree on Sunday. Perhaps more accustomed to dark, smoke-filled clubs, bassist Steve Novosel said between sets, "It's a little different, but it's still nice. Even though it's outdoors, it's still an intimate setting. " Bollenback, a guitarist, was making his seventh appearance at the seventh annual Jazz Festival, a free concert presented by the Renfrew Institute. Novosel and drummer Lenny Robinson filled out the trio.

And even though he is featured on more than 50 recordings and has garnered four Most Valuable Player Awards from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, Shank, 79, is still working on it. "I'm mainly focused on trying to improve what I do," he told The Herald-Mail while driving through the...

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -After more than 10 years since his first appearance at the outdoor concert, sax man David "Fathead" Newman is back. Newman will perform at the Renfrew Jazz Festival from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 27. The free concert is held on the lawn behind the Renfrew Institute for Cultural and Environmental Studies.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- It's almost as if the Pied Piper is drawing them to the expansive lawn. Year after year, hundreds of people from all over the region carry chairs and blankets from the lower parking lot at Renfrew Park. They cross the bridge and continue on the stone path, seemingly pulled by the sounds of jazz coming from the lawn. On Sunday, it was the David Leonhardt Jazz Group doing the beckoning. "I think the really cool thing about this event is that it makes jazz accessible to everybody," said Tracy Holliday, a Renfrew Institute staff member.

The piano misbehaves, the saxophone screams and the drums shift from ethereal and restrained to raw and ready to rumble. It's a study in collective improvisation - a rhythmic energy known as jazz. And on Sunday, Aug. 21, it returns to Waynesboro in the form of a big backyard party. As it has for the past 20 years, the Renfrew Museum and Park will play host to the Renfrew Institute Jazz Festival - a concert featuring some of the world's top musicians. The festival will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the lawn behind the museum house.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. --It was a fine way to spend a late summer Sunday afternoon -- sitting under tall trees in mid-90s heat listening to cool jazz. From 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, 700 to 800 people assembled under the oak, locust and maple trees on the back lawn of Renfrew Museum and Park to hear five professionals interpret jazz. Their renditions covered old standards and some new material. It just so happened that Sunday was the birthday of the late, great tenor saxophonist Charlie "Bird" Parker.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com Renfrew Park is about a world away from Birdland, Charlie "Bird" Parker's New York City cabaret of the 1950s, but music is a universal language that the crowd of about 300 at Sunday's Jazz Festival seemed to understand. Sunday was the birthday of the legendary alto saxophonist and, although he died nearly half a century ago, his music lived on with a quartet performing Parker's "Au Privave" and other selections under the trees during the 13th annual festival, presented by Renfrew Institute.
