Jazz & Colors will return to New York City’s Central Park on Saturday, November 9. The free single-day festival will once again bring a number of ensembles to the park for an afternoon of jazz standards.

This year’s event will feature more than thirty ensembles, who will a be performing the same shared set list of jazz classics. The eclectic lineup—ranging from small combos to big bands—will play their two sets simultaneously amongst the beautiful fall foliage from noon to 4pm. Jazz & Colors will give fans an opportunity to listen to great music while also exploring some Central Park’s most iconic sites, such as Naumberg Bandshell and Duke Ellington Circle.

Jazz & Colors is produced by Relix/Jambands.com publisher Peter Shapiro, in partnership with the City of New York and the Central Park Conservancy, with programming by talent producer Brice Rosenbloom (Music Director at Le Poisson Rouge, Producer of Winter JazzFest).
