On Friday night, August 17, the rain could not stop the first annual Furman Jazz Fling to benefit Jazz at Lincoln Center, from going full swing! A who’s who on the Hampton’s scene joined hosts Victoria Moran Furman and Jay Furman (Jazz at Lincoln Center Board member) at their stunning Southampton home for a joyful event complete with a performance by Wynton.

Enjoying the glorious décor by David Beahm and food by Taste Caterers were Jojo Cohen and Eric Moran playing host to the younger crowd. Jazz at Lincoln Center Board members came out to enjoy the night, including Shahara Ahmad-Lewellyn, Bob Burns (with wife Janice Burns), Alan Cohn (with wife Betsy Cohn), Gordon J. Davis (with wife Peggy Davis), Michael Fricklas (with wife Donna Astion), Keith Reinhard (with wife Rose-Lee Reinhard), and Ashley Schiff.

The polo crowd was there with Jazz at Lincoln Center Board member and polo playing stunner Ashley Schiff, with Nacho and Delfina Figueras — who’s sister Mercedes Figueras sat in late night with Wynton and members of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (Dan Nimmer, Walter Blanding, Carlos Henriquez and Ali Jackson with vocalist Sachal Vasandani) playing her sax and keeping time with the band. Peter Brant and Stephanie Seymour, Andrea and Maurice DuBois were also seen swinging to the music.
