'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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
