Experience the vibrant legacy of jazz in the heart of Queens this summer! The Queens Jazz Trail Concert Series takes you on a musical journey through the borough’s rich jazz heritage, where legends like Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Tony Bennett, Lena Horne, and scores of others once called home.

Inspired by the iconic Queens Jazz Trail Map, the series brings this rich history to life in our community parks. Join us for a series of five Thursday evening concerts, each set against the backdrop of Queens’ beautiful parks. These FREE outdoor performances celebrate the past, present, and future of jazz, showcasing talented musicians and honoring the borough’s legendary artists.

This renowned New York City musician has performed with Brazilian Jazz legends like Ken Peplowski, Alcione, Hendrik Meurkens, Marcus McLaurine, Russell Malone, Kenia, Peter Washington, John DiMartino, and Helio Alves. Claudio Roditi praised him as “…one of the most talented musicians to come out of Brazil in recent years.”
