Tony Gulizia, Vail’s own jazz ambassador, returns to Walkers Grill for a special engagement May 9, 10 and 11. Gulizia performs his own blend of blues, standards and straight-ahead jazz making him a favorite with local jazz lovers.

The musician-teacher-DJ has been playing jazz for decades. The way he rips up the piano reveals an abiding affection for music that remains undiminished by time or familiarity.

“Jazz is America’s music, it’s our gift to the world,” Gulizia said.

He gigs around Vail for 42 weeks straight, playing for both public and private events without a day off in between. When not performing or teaching in Vail, he plays on cruise ships in the Caribbean, a wedding in Houston, or with a whole slew of cohorts in Lech Zurs, Austria.
