Summer Jazz Cafe 2016 at the Two River Theater

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 Cafe 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 at Summer Jazz Cafe 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 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 and private funding and individual contributions from our members and patrons.
