On March 9th, the Jazz Center of New York held a great event at Saint Peter's Church. The concert was wonderful but there were so many great artists that some didn't get a chance to perform. Please join The Jazz Center of New York as we present Part II on May 29 in spirit of the March 9th concert. On the May 29 program, there will be singers, insrumentalists and dancers performing. Much music will fill the air. This is also a fund raiser for The Jazz Center of New York.
On March 9th The Jazz Center of New York honored Jimmy Heath, Barry Harris, and (posthumously) Frank Wess. Each was presented with the Paul J Ash Legend in Jazz Award and an honorarium of $2000. Also it was celebration of Cobi's 89th birthday (born on March 3rd), and Paul's March 29th birthday, when he would have been 86. Many friends performed, including Jimmy and Barry, as well as many singers, insrtumentalists and dancers.
The event takes place in the Sanctuary at Saint Peter's Church, 619 Lexington Ave. (corner of East 54th St.) General admission $20. Open Mic core members $15
Hope to see you on May 29 at Saint Peter's Church.
