Friday & Saturday Evenings – 8:00pm – Two River Theater, Red Bank
Since the summer of 2006, Jazz Arts Project has been presenting straight ahead swinging classic jazz throughout the Greater South/Central NJ region. Audiences, artists, and critics alike rave about this Summer Jazz Series citing an excellent atmosphere, great acoustics, and a consistently high level of artistry as reasons to return. You will be seated at cozy candle-lit cocktail tables with Coffee, Tea and Delectable treats available from our jazz café. Elegant theatrical lighting and an intimate room add to everyone’s enjoyment. Last year the entire series was named a Tri-City News Pick of the Year.
In past years we have presented such luminaries in the jazz world as Bucky Pizzarelli, Claudio Roditi, Joe Locke, Warren Vaché, Dave Valentin, Norman Simmons, Howard Johnson, Paul Meyers, Tony DeSare, Champian Fulton, Jay Leonhart, Aaron Weinstein, Cecil Brooks, Valery Ponomarev, Wayne Escoffery The Les Paul Trio, Wallace Roney, the Mingus Dynasty, Jon Faddis and many others. You can be assured that each years series will present truly inspired and exciting world-class artists.
Ticket prices are kept to an absolute minimum in order to encourage wide participation and to build an audience for jazz in the local area. These events are subsidized to an extent by local grants, private funding and individual contributions from our members and patrons.
“…the Jazz Café is a simple and sophisticated setting wherein a very diverse audience can enjoy coffee and desert while digging some of the region’s most sought after musicians.”
– Tom Chesek (The Hub)
“There isn’t a live music calendar in jazz that can compare with this patient stroll through the decorated halls of America’s music with the world’s foremost practitioners as our guides – it’s that good.”
– Craig A. Dowd, Tri City News
