JAZZ BY STARLIGHT: A Magical Weekend of Music

It was just what the doctor ordered — two perfect fall weather evenings, a picturesque backyard setting, and the best seat in town for world-class jazz!

We really missed listening to live music together!

On Friday, our own CHRISTIAN McBRIDE took the stage with his friends, RAVI COLTRANE, JEFF “TAIN” WATTS and CHRISTIAN SANDS.  The music and synergy among the quartet was simply electric — the (socially distant) audience seated across the backyard’s garden and poolside could really feel how much the four jazz superstars were enjoying themselves too.

Saturday: Another spectacular evening!

Our second evening of JAZZ BY STARLIGHT was a double header — one of the most gifted pianists in the world,  BILL CHARLAP in concert with CHRISTIAN McBRIDE, followed by the sensational young vocalist who has been taking the world by storm, JAZZMEIA HORN. Talk about a knock-out night of music!

The weather goddesses again looked kindly on JAZZ HOUSE KiDS — we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect autumn night for such an auspicious occasion under the stars in the beautiful backyard of our hosts, Susan & Chris Gifford.

Proceeds of JAZZ BY STARLIGHT benefited the JAZZ HOUSE KiDS Resiliency Fund, which continues to help this organization meet the many needs of students, alumni, families, and faculty who turn to the JAZZ HOUSE to make music and find community, opportunity, continuity, and support. If you were not able to attend this weekend, we welcome your voice to the chorus of generous supporters.
