'Jammin'; The Summer Concert Series for the 'serious' Jazz Lover! What could be more inviting than listening to the sounds of great Jazz Artists, cast out over The Hudson River, at sunset, for Free?!
Our Season 'kicks-off' on Sunday July 12th with... a Legendary vocalist who once stood in for the one-and-only Lady Day" (Ms. Billie Holiday) at The Apollo; quite a feat, especially at that time; for a white woman to step out onto that 'hallowed' turf in the midst of Harlem! Following the success of this event, she then began to be greatly, and widely revered. As one of the original members of a group who epitomised 'vocalese' she once penned lyrics to a famous tenor saxophone solo by Wardell Gray; Twisted". She was one third of this one-of-a-kind vocal ensemble called Lambert, Hendricks and she is the very special Ms. Annie Ross. Ms. Ross was recently informed that she will be a recipient of a 2010 N.E.A."Jazz Masters" Award, this month she will be inducted into the ASCAP Jazz Wall of Fame, at Lincoln Center. This July 12th Jammin' On The Hudson" will have the priviledge of Presenting; Ms. Annie Ross. This is one Event not to be missed!
