Each Sunset Wednesday, enjoy outdoor concerts by vibrant New York City musicians who will bring a pop sensibility to their performance on Wave Hill’s Great Lawn.

A clarinet, an accordion, a guitar and a trombone walk into a bar…what came out was The Four Bags, a Brooklyn super-group that’s difficult to define but easy to enjoy. The Four Bags play chamber music described by The New Republic as “exuberant, virtuosic and light-spirited…smart music with a joyful intensity.”

Its members are Brian Drye (trombone), Jacob Garchik (accordion), Sean Moran (guitar), and Mike McGinnis(woodwinds). Pop selections include tunes originated by Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys.

Visitors may bring a lawn chair and picnic during the performance.

This event is free with admission to the grounds.

These incredibly talented women endured diminished opportunities for decades, yet continued to persevere, inspire and elevate their talents in a field that seldom welcomed them. Today, there is a new breed of gifted young women taking their rightful place in the world of jazz, which can no longer deny their talents.

There will be a panel discussion following the film, led by Sherrie Maricleof the DIVA Jazz Orchestra!

Each Sunset Wednesday, enjoy outdoor concerts by vibrant New York City musicians who will bring a pop sensibility to their performance on Wave Hill’s Great Lawn.

Appearing for the second consecutive year on a Sunset Wednesday is Bronx-based, upright bass player and composer Hilliard Greene with his powerhouse quartet, The Jazz Expressions. Greene’s personal jazz style combines elements of his classical training, rock, blues, and R&B, and he has worked with Uri Caine, Dave Douglas, The Ink Spots, Leroy Jenkins, and Jason Moran, among others. His musical collaborators are TK Blue (saxophone/flute), Dwayne ‘Cook’ Broadnax (drums), and Sharp Radway (keyboard), and their ensemble sound has been declared “flawless” by Jazz News. The evening includes Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” and a pop tune sing-along. Visitors may bring a lawn chair and picnic during the performance.

This concert is free with admission to the grounds.

Join the Fort Tryon Park Trust, NYC Parks, and the Michels family in honoring the late Council Member Stan Michels at the eighth annual Memorial Jazz Concert. Enjoy live jazz by local impresario Marjorie Eliot and her ensemble underneath the majestic elms on the promenade, alongside the beautiful Heather Garden and overlooking the Hudson River.

Stan Michels represented Northern Manhattan in the City Council for 24 years from 1978 through 2001. He was chair of the Committee on Environmental Protection, and his legislative record was notable for his work fighting on behalf of tenants for the expansion of the city’s recycling program, for the protection of our water supply and cleaner air, and against childhood lead poisoning, smoking in public places, and unreasonable noise. He was also a steadfast advocate for parks, allocating over $50 million for park improvements in Washington Heights, Inwood, and Harlem, including virtually every playground in his district. The promenade where this concert is being held was named in his honor shortly before he passed away on August 1, 2008.

We hope you can be with us to remember Stan on the eighth anniversary of his passing.

This program will be accessible to people with disabilities.
