The Hudson Valley Jazz Festival is designed to feature jazz musicians from the greater Hudson Valley. The past 10 years, many others participated as well. Some with high name visibility such as The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Dave Liebman, Wallace Roney, Arturo O’farrell, Lenny White, Buster Williams, saxophonist Bill Evans, Adam Nussbaum and Mark Egan to name a few.  But the focus is the great local talent here in The Hudson Valley.   We are a collaborative of presenting venues, sponsors and a volunteer board.

 Our goal is to promote local jazz musicians and shape programming to be inclusive and diverse. 

In the plans, though not yet realized include an education program and to incorporate other art modalities. If you’re a musician, feel free to add your info to our artist data-base.  Interested in sponsorship or volunteering?  Write us.

Continuing in 2019, we’ll be donating a portion of what we raise to The Jazz Foundation of America.  Thank you for yours.
