Hudson Hall Launches a Special Edition of the Hudson Jazz Festival
POSTPONED UNTIL SPRING 2021
Music as a healing force is at the center of this special edition of the Hudson Jazz Festival featuring five concerts streamed live from Hudson Hall, visual art, listening pods, film and more.
Together we celebrate the enduring vision of Alice and John Coltrane, whose relationship and creative output symbolized artistic achievement and Black excellence. When they met and fell in love in 1963, John had already achieved fame as a saxophonist and composer, and Alice was a pioneering female jazz pianist and harpist. They became spiritual soulmates and musical travelers, exploring the intersection of earthly and divine love. Their goal was to be a force for good through music, promoting the unifying power of a shared musical experience and learning from each other. Join us as we honor this legacy and provide space for jazz musicians and artists to respond creatively to the life-altering impact of 2020, channeling the Coltrane spirit to bring you music that heals, entertains and inspires. Check back for updates on free films, talks and community events being planned as part of the Hudson Jazz Festival.
