🎺An innovative series of six concerts follows the course of Jazz history, from its roots in Ragtime and Dixieland, to the Swing / Big Band era, through Cool Jazz of the 1950s, and beyond. Set in historic Hempstead House, the series showcases six outstanding bands, featuring many of NYC’s top jazz musicians. Each concert is performed in two acts – the first set pays tribute to an era in the fascinating history of Jazz, while the second set bridges the gap into the present and future – hear the influences of the great composers of the past as today’s artists play their distinctive arrangements and original compositions. Take in this uniquely American music form, while savoring fine wine with friends and family.
The series premieres this Thursday, January 16 at 8 pm, with Danny Lipsitz and the Brass Tacks.
