In another exciting new partnership the fest is joining forces with Shanghai Mermaid, the storied purveyor of the most extraordinary jazz age experiences around town, to bring you Storyville Stomp. Join us for a fun and sultry evening set in 1917 New Orleans’ red light district filled with hot jazz and smokey blues, as well as sensual performance art from burlesque stars to aerial artists.

Our friends at @Caramoor have an incredible jazz program this year. So many of the fest's alums are in: @RileyMulherkar's Gotham Kings, @BriaSkonberg, Cecile McLorin Salvant and more. It's of the most beautiful places to hear live music in proximity of NYC. Do yourself a favor and go. Tickets: Caramoor.org

We're in absolute awe of these brilliant, fierce ladies. A heartfelt thank you goes out to @erikaelliottnyc and @paulaabreu of @summerstage for inviting New York Hot Jazz Festival to partner up for a magical afternoon of hot jazz and swing; the incredible Elizabeth Bougerol, the co-leader of the @hotsardines, for talking up the aforementioned partnership and for delivering an exhilarating set on Saturday; the fest co-founder @BriaSkonberg for putting together a killer NY Hot Jazz Fest All-Star band to deliver a dynamite set as well; and last but not least the festival co-director Jennie Wasserman for bringing all the elements together. What an honor to collaborate with these inspiring women who bring joy to so many.
One inspiring lady who we wish had been in this picture as well is Juliette Campbell of @shanghaimermaid. She was busy downtown setting up for the Storyville Stomp @DromNYC, our collaboration for the 2nd half of the hot jazz festivities with a New Orleans twist that day. We're Looking forward to more beautiful things to come. Opa!
Evan Sherman Big Band with a few of the fest's alums at Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night Swing tomorrow. This will be a lot of fun!
