Then Faddis <em>found</em> Gillespie and reacquainted the older trumpeter with some of his own best work. Their relationship became a close mentorship in jazz, maybe the closest.

Every room was a gallery, including their favorite, the Music Room; after they lost their only son in World War II, they presented a small concert series there to honor him. So began the transformation of Caramoor from a private home to an arts center and treasure for Westchester County, north of New York City.<p>Today, every summer from June to August, Caramoor presents chamber music and a resident orchestra.

Founded in 2009 by singer Joon Lee, this is a listening room. There's food at the bar, poetry (Rumi!) on the ceiling, and wall-to-wall people.

And it did rain in 2012, though the audience stayed dry under the Venetian Theater roof with Bridgewater and her awesome band.<p>Bridgewater's musical director is Edsel Gomez, arranger and pianist. He's her orchestra, pacesetter and descarga driver all in one.

At least two are always running simultaneously. Given the surfeit of options, it's rare to hear a complete set. The question begins to nag: <em>Should be we somewhere else? </em>And away you go, leaving a work in progress to make sure you don't miss one getting underway.<em></em><p><em></em>But sometimes if you choose a spot on the lawn and stay put, the juxtaposition of two bands delivers a fine festival experience.
