Great Jazz – Streamed From Central Park

Great Jazz on the Great Hill is an annual event which the Central Park Conservancy and Jazzmobile are bringing to us virtually this year.

The virtual event will begin with an introduction from Central Park Conservancy President, Elizabeth W. Smith and Jazzmobile Director and Executive Producer Robin Bell-Steven.

Performers will include Alyson Williams, Jeremy Pelt, and The George Gee Swing Band.

Alyson Williams takes the music world by storm! Starting in R&B as a featured artist with Def Jam Records, she is now a prominent jazz and blues vocalist performing in clubs and stages across the country. Her newest project is Summer Nights in Harlem, and her tribute concert to Phyliss Hyman is in collaboration with Nat Adderley, Jr.

Preeminent trumpeter Jeremy Pelt made his debut in the jazz world as a member of the Mingus Big Band and the Jimmy Heath Orchestra. Now a bandleader, he has recorded 10 albums and tours nationally and internationally. He has been featured in DownBeat magazine and the Wall Street Journal.

The George Gee Swing Band attracts both millennials and long-time fans of jazz and swing. Gee and his band are leaders in the re-emergence of swing dance as a popular cultural experience, not only in New York but around the world.

The performance can be streamed here between August 8 and September 30.
