Christmas from the Blue Note, a new CD collaboration between Steinhardt Jazz and the Blue Note Jazz Club
Continuing in a most unique collaboration that bridges the educational and professional worlds, Steinhardt Jazz and the Blue Note Jazz Club have once again partnered to produce Christmas from the Blue Note. Released in time for the holidays, his CD features seminal jazz artists produced by the Blue Note including McCoy Tyler, Little Jimmy Scott, and Maya Azucena, along with the NYU Jazz Orchestra arranged and conducted by Rich Shemaria, Steinhardt Jazz Composer-in-Residence. In addition, Steinhardt jazz artist/faculty Stefon Harris, Lenny Pickett, George Garzone and Dave Schroeder are featured solos on the CD.
This project marks the second collaboration between Steinhardt Jazz and the Blue Note Jazz Club with Steinhardt Jazz Artist-in-Residence Kenny Werner's Guggenheim award winning CD No Beginning, No End CD, released earlier this Fall on Half Note Records, the recording label for the Blue Note Jazz Club.
