Central Brooklyn Jazz Festival Starts Next Week

There is no shortage of jazz clubs in Manhattan, but fans on the other four boroughs might have a bit of a harder time finding their favorite live music. Fear not! The 13th Annual Central Brooklyn Jazz Festival-Jazz: A Music of the Spirit will run from March 30 until April 30, presented by the Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium. This music series is New York City's longest continuously running grassroots festival dedicated to jazz. More than 500 artists will be performing in 40 events at venues from Coney Island to Williamsburg in Brooklyn.

Performances include a salute to Gil Scott-Heron with Abiodun Oyewole and a tribute to Gloria Lynne by Lil Phillips. Other concerts: Pucho and his Latin Soul Brothers, Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, and a celebration of the music of Kenny Dorham and Cecil Payne by the Long Island University Brooklyn music faculty. Jazz great, Bob Cunningham, will be inducted into the Brooklyn Jazz Hall of Fame by way of an all star jam session. Jazz performers of tomorrow are showcased during a Youth Jazz Jamboree at Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Plaza.
