There were a bounty of music choices on the menu last night: You could have checked out the inaugural concert at the Lakeview Ampitheater; or you could have taken in the final show at the NYS Fair Grandstand, but if you are a lover of smooth jazz, the normally serene Salt Springs neighborhood was the place to be on Thursday.
For the fourth and final installment of the Jazz in the City Series CNY Jazz invited Four 80 East with guest Jeff Kashiwa to Lemoyne Plaza. They came, they played, the conquered.
Listen to the clip above as the band encourages the crowd in a blissful karaoke session. Every summer has a soundtrack, and we will always associate “Ah, Ah, Ooo” with 2015.
The venue, and it’s abundant lawn space, was the perfect place to beat the heat and conclude the summer music season.
Apparently it’s okay to save the best for last.
Sure it was hot; sure the party got forced inside due to the rain; and sure the summer is nearly over, but the party must continue…
And that’s just what happened inside the St. Lucy’s Auditorium, as Jazz in the City stormed onto the Westside scene last night. The night was memorable thanks to some upbeat, tropical sounds from Alex Torres and his Latin Orchestra, as well as some great dancing by instructors from La familia de La Salsa.
For a few hours the far side of the Connective Corridor was full of the joyous kind of celebration that conjures up memories of never-ending summer evenings.
Just in case you missed it, the final Jazz in the City is schedule for Sept 3, and Alex Torres will be performing next week at the NYS Fair.
