What an amazing event! As with last year, the Third Annual Hot Jazz Festival was held at the beautiful Player’s Club in New York City. With two stages on two levels, a Steinway Lounge showcasing piano soloists, and the lower level featuring screenings of hot jazz films, fans could choose to move to different rooms between song/set breaks. Completely sold out, with over a thousand fans and musicians attending, and with many of the musicians under thirty, it’s clear to see that hot jazz is in no danger of dying out.
