The Williamsburg Jazz Festival returns
on Sept. 8 with four days of jazz concerts and education. The
fest of "truly American music" was first organized
by Jesse Selengut (pictured) in 2003 and strives to give emerging
talent an opportunity to play alongside nationally recognized
In addition to creating the annual music celebration, Selengut performs with the quartet, Noir, which blends electronica and groove-infused jazz. Selengut and Noir will play Galapagos on Sept. 10 at 9 pm [70 N. Sixth St. at Wythe Avenue, (718) 782-5188] as part of the festival.
This year’s line-up will also include a jazz improvisation master class with trumpeter Dave Douglas and a discussion of the topic "What is the New York Jazz Scene Today?," amongst a panel of musicians, club owners, journalists and educators. Both of these educational events also take place at Galapagos.
The other two festival venues include Laila Lounge [113 N. Seventh St. at Wythe Avenue, (718) 486-6791] and Club Europa [98-104 Meserole Ave. at Manhattan Avenue, (718) 383-5723], where the festival after-party will be a showcase for the Williamsburg Jazz Festival All-Stars.
