Grammy-nominated guitarist Diego Figueiredo and world-renowned clarinetist/saxophonist Ken Peplowski first met in Vail when they were introduced by Vail Jazz founder Howard Stone, and have been performing together ever since. In 2019 they produced a duo album called Amizade, which means ‘friendship’ in Portuguese. Vail Jazz is pleased to present these two friends performing alongside one another as they make their return to officially kick off the 28th Annual Vail Jazz Festival!
