Artist paying homage to Misters Mathews and Hubbard include: James Spaulding, Louis Hayes, George Cables, Dwayne Burno, Kenyatta Beasley and musical director Kiane Zawadi with a special poetic interlude by Louis Reyes Rivera plus other invited guest artists.
Ronnie Mathews' Brooklyn roots go back to his birth year of 1935. He has been compared by critics to Bud Powell and McCoy Tyner and the NY Daily News says of Ronnie, ...another stalwart figure who has yet to receive proper recognition". Jazz master Freddie Hubbard became a one name jazz icon while living in Brooklyn during the 60s and put the borough on the jazz map with his immortal live recording, The Night Of The Cookers, in the jazz venue Club La Marchal.
This event is sponsored by Yamaha Corporation of America, Brooklyn Tourism and Visitors Center and the 47 members/organizations of Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium.
