The Hudson Valley Jazz Festival begins it’s 14th season Aug 9-14.  The festival is held in several towns.   We’ve been honored to present high profile jazz artists in the past.  However our mission is primarily featuring groups led by Hudson Valley NY resident artists. ( Who they hire is up to them). We’re all about helping raise the profile of musicians with years of experience deserving wider recognition.  We appreciate the coverage given to us by The NY Times, DownBeat, The Village Voice, JazzTimes, WBGO Radio, Chronogram, Straus News, Times Herald Record, Hudson Valley Magazine and others.
We’re a collaborative organization working with musicians, venues, towns and organizations to produce concerts.  
Looking for a jazz group?  You’ve come to the right place.
