On June 21, Fareed Haque and MathGames! will bring its innovative sound and style to headline “Jazz Under the Stars” at Brookhaven Village.

Haque, a renowned jazz guitarist and instructor, combines his many influences and technology to craft a sound he calls “jazztronica” with the help of his band.

Other artists scheduled to perform at this year's festival:

June 20: Parker Millsap, whose blues-inspired songwriting has been likened to Robert Johnson-meets-John Prine.

June 21: A Taste of Herb, offering a rousing tribute to Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass.

June 22: Justin Echols Quartet, led by jazz crooner Justin Echols, touted by Wynton Marsalis for his smooth vocal interpretations of material from “The Great American Songbook;” The Paseo Street Walkers, which promises to deliver a contemporary jazz-meets-rock-influenced jam; and the Norman High School Jazz Combo.
