For 22 years, the Jazz Foundation's annual Jazz Loft Party has offered an experience like no other in the music world. Five hours of continuous jazz and blues in three spectacular loft spaces with panoramic views of the Hudson River. It is one of the only occasions in New York City where you can roam free in an intimate setting and mingle with some of the greatest jazz legends and celebrity hosts.
These historic loft parties have featured Lou Reed, Ron Carter, Jimmy Heath, Randy Weston, Melvin van Peebles, Gloria Lynne, The Hot 8 Brass Band and many more. In the Fall of 2008, the great Odetta graced us with her presence. We did not know that this was to be one of her very last performances. Click here to watch this historic set.
This event benefits the JFA's programs, which have been keeping jazz and blues alive since 1989 by helping the musicians who played with everyone from Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday to Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones, providing housing assistance, health care, gigs and emergency financial assistance in times of crisis.
