Join the Fort Tryon Park Trust, NYC Parks and the Michels family in honoring the late Council Member Stan Michels at the seventh annual memorial jazz concert performed by local impresario Marjorie Eliot and her ensemble. The jazz is hot and the setting is cool, 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 also was 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 seventh anniversary of his passing.

This program will be accessible to people with disabilities.

As one of the last black string bands in the U.S.—currently based in the concrete hills of NYC—the Hillbillies keep an important legacy alive with a rootsy, homegrown style that many forget was a key element in the genesis of all the music we cherish as uniquely American—jazz, blues, bluegrass, rockabilly, rock and roll and country. Bringing a fresh urgency to the genre for a 21st Century world in need of some deep musical education, the ensemble led by Henrique Prince (fiddle, vocals) and Norris Bennett (banjo, mountain dulcimer, guitar, vocals)-- featuring Gloria Thomas Gassaway on vocals and bones, William “Salty Bill” Salter on acoustic bass with A.R. and Newman Taylor Baker on washboard and percussion--creates an untamed and joyful vibe that echoes across the generations and transcends all racial and cultural boundaries.

Founded in Tel Aviv by Lee Sher and Saar Harari in 2000 and now based in NYC, LeeSaar is “a gutsy, brainy modern-dance troupe” (NY Times) with a highly theatrical approach. Props, costumes, and pantomime punctuate their Gaga-inspired movement to form a delightful brand of avant-garde.

The program also includes a duet by their greatest influence and one of the most brilliant living choreographers, Israeli visionary OHAD NAHARIN, performed by guest dancers from his Batsheva Dance Company. Naharin developed the Gaga technique with Batsheva in the 90s and has continued to build and refine its vocabulary over three decades.
