7.14 100 Years of Jazz @ The NY Botanical Garden
Friday, 14 July, 2017
Featured Artist with Chris Washburne’s Celebration of 100 Years of Jazz @ The NY Botanical Garden
Our celebration of the newly released CD “Rags & Roots” continues with a special concert at the NY Botanical Garden. The 1917 efforts by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band mark the first time for recorded music to be marketed as jazz. One-hundred years later, the health of the genre may seem dubious, but that won’t stop us from creating an experience with the best of what the art form offers. The adventurous attitude of the Catskill Jazz Factory helps make it possible. Special guests include vocalist Vuyo Sotashe; pianist André Mehmari and trumpeter Dominick Farinacci.
