Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz has teamed up with the Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium (CBJC) to create "24/7 Jazz Brooklyn," a non-stop celebration of jazz throughout the month of April at clubs, restaurants, churches and music schools.

At a January press conference at the Sugarhill Supper Club at DeKalb and Nostrand avenues, musicians affiliated with the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music (left to right) Scott Napoli, Darryl Hall and Cecil Bridgewater gave a taste of the fireworks that are to come.

On April 2 at 6 pm, Sugarhill will be the site of the festival gala featuring performances by cornetist-bandleader Olu Dara and a solo performance by pianist Bertha Hope. At the gala, drummer Art Blakey will be inducted into the CBJC’s hall of fame.

Other highlights of the festival include "Jazz: The Women’s Viewpoint," a forum at 1 pm on April 5, featuring the ideas of women musicians and wives of musicians, and the Youth Jazz Jamboree, on April 12, from noon to 6 pm. Both events will take place at the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Plaza, 1368 Fulton St. between Brooklyn and New York avenues.

For more information call (718) 802-4488.
