in partnership with the Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium
BQLT is excited to partner with the Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium once again this summer to bring jazz to three more of our gardens!
The Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium (CBJC) is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to showcasing local jazz talent, and preserving, promoting and supporting live jazz in unserved Brooklyn communities. Based in Brooklyn, the CBJC is made up of jazz musicians, connoisseurs, venues, community organizations, and faith-based institutions.
The final performance of the series will be at 227th Street Cambria Heights Community Garden in Bushwick on Saturday, July 27th at 5 pm featuring Reggie Woods and his trio. This will be a great performance and you’ll have an amazing time. Join us and enjoy free jazz in the gardens!
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Reggie Woods is a complete artist; he arranges, composes, and produces. His distinctive sound is reminiscent of Gene Ammons and Dexter Gordon. Though Jazz is his musical passion, Woods’ saxophone is equally comfortable with other varieties such as Blues, Funk, and Pop. He is an active member of Central Brooklyn Jazz and serves as music director for CBJC’s Art as a Catalyst Gun Intiative. Reggie has performed with Brooklyn Jazz Hall of Famer, Betty Carter, Isaac Hayes, Vanessa Rubin, jazz master Jimmy Heath, and a host of celebrated musicians from other genres. His artistry, recognized by way of, Satchmo Music Entertainment Award and National Endowment Recipient for Jazz Performance, is also enjoyed through the world.
