2023 Hudson Jazz Festival: The Shape of Jazz Today
Curated by Cat Henry, the 2023 Hudson Jazz Festival: The Shape of Jazz Today brings together adventurous, inventive artists whose bold vision takes jazz in new directions while honoring the traditions of the past.
From Cat Henry:
“Since Ornette Coleman’s “The Shape of Jazz To Come” caused a stir in 1959 for its inventiveness, jazz fans have grown to appreciate the enormous breadth of jazz expression. Today, performances draw as much from A Tribe Called Quest or Radiohead as they do Coltrane, Ellington, or Monk. Showcasing this unlimited color palette of rhythm and tone, the festival provides an exciting glimpse of where we are today…and yes, what’s to come.”
