Forget the fact that I will finally see the legendary French fusion violinist Jean Luc-Ponty for the first time since I’ve seen him in the bands of Frank Zappa and Chick Corea. The fact remains that this particular fest, Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival, now in its 40th year, always kicks off the Saratoga summer concert season under those towering pine trees. And it all takes place this weekend June 24 and 25 on two stages. The sets are staggered so one can traverse the perimeter in a mellow mood and not miss a beat.
