July 7 Unfiltered Jazz Festival Night I

Kicking off the festival is the record release for keyboardist/composer Erik Deutsch‘s eighth album La Nuit Blanche. The album translates as the white night and expresses what we all consider an all-nighter. The night will begin with Stuart Bogie’s newest improvising group, who was in the likes of Arcade Fire, Antibalas, JRAD, and more.

July 14 Night II

Night II includes a reunion show for Jennifer Hartswick’s beloved band of the 2000s, presented in
collaboration with Dezron Douglas.

I am thrilled to spend the evening with three of my dearest friends, Dezron Douglas, Conor Elmes, and Joe Davidian. We have all been making music with each other since childhood, but it’s been years since we were on the same bandstand together…it is sure to be an epic reunion.

July 20 Night III

Composer/trumpet player Jeff Beal returns to his roots in an evening of intimate chamber jazz, featuring world-renowned bassist John Patitucci and guitarist Steve Cardenas. Beal’s music has been featured in House Of Cards, having composed the score and played trumpet in the main title theme.

July 21 Night IV

Grammy-nominated harpist Brandee Younger and critically acclaimed Blue Note Records recording artist, vibraphonist Joel Ross. Younger is a classically trained musician and is known for expressive interpretations of traditional harp repertoire. Ross refines an expression true to himself and his generation, and in 2019 released Edison Award-winning Record KingMaker.

July 22 Night V

The final night features Brooklyn Raga Massive in a tribute to John McLaughlin with The Emerald Beyond. They continue to bring the world’s hottest fusion of Indian Classical and Jazz to Fotografiska.
