I'm curating a Wednesday evening Jazz Series at the Brooklyn Lyceum (227 4th Avenue-take the R Train to Union Street) in Park Slope, Brooklyn. My goal in choosing artists is to pick musicians who are defining "jazz' in diverse ways. From "free jazz" to contemporary swing to third stream to jazz-rock hybrids to things which you really can't classify, on the Wednesday Jazz Series you will surely come across something interesting.
The great line up is below and later in the fall I'll publish 2008's line-up. There are two sets 8:00pm and 9:30pm with a cover of only $10. A former bathhouse, the Brooklyn Lyceum is a unique space and a great place to grab some refreshments, including libations, and sit and enjoy some quality music.
