Speaking of…Jazz in July Summer Festival

Screen shot of Jazz Improv Magazine on Jazz in July Summer Festival

Readers of our blog will recall our recent podcast with pianist Bill Charlap, Artistic Director of the 92nd Street Y Jazz in July Summer Festival. Bill spoke at length about his vision for the festival, the significance of New York Jazz, the role Vince Guaraldi (composer of the Charlie Brown songs) played in quietly introducing America to his own music without notice, why this series is unique in the season and more. At one point, Charlap declared the acoustics at our concert hall as the best of any he has played.

Today, we have more Jazz in July audio for you, courtesy of our friends at NPR. Kurt Elling was their pick for Song of the Day, with his track Lush Life. Kurt will carry the vocals in Jazz in July on Jul 21 for our Sondheim & Styne concert.

Relatedly, Jazz Improv Magazine wrote a wonderful article on Jazz in July in their latest issue, as seen in the screen capture above. You can read that here on page 60, in a PDF.
