Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium Presents As Part of the 10th Annual Central Brooklyn Jazz Festival A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO BROOKLYN's JAZZ GREATS: Ronnie Mathews / Freddie Hubbard

Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium will present a musical tribute to jazz piano great Ronnie Mathews and jazz trumpet legend Freddie Hubbard on Sunday, April 19th at SugarHill Restaurant & Supper Club, 609 DeKalb Avenue near Nostrand, in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn from 5:00 to 9:00 PM. There is a modest cover charge of $10 and a club minumum of $10 for both performances. For information call 718.569.1896 or visit the web page www.cbjcjazz.org.

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
