 Jersey City, NJ. Throughout 2017, Riveriew Jazz.org has been presenting international jazz artists in the incredibly beautiful Harborside Atrium.  These concerts have been made possible from a new partnership with Mack-Cali the Jersey City based developer.  The line up of artists has been a who’s who of jazz today including a bonafide NEA Jazz Master drummer Jimmy Cobb, soul-jazz tenor saxophonist giant Houston Person, local legends such as drummer Winard Harper, as well as the brightest stars in jazz on the rise such as drummer Jerome Jennings, saxophonist Craig Handy, and baritone saxophonist Lauren Sevian. Jimmy Cobb will also be a featured artist at this year’s Riverview Jazz Festival on June 10th in Riverview Fisk Park.

“We’re very excited to be partnering with Mack-Cali on the Jazz at Harborside Series, it’s an incredible venue to put our mission into action.  At the Harborside Atrium we can bring world class jazz artists to the community for free!” says RiverviewJazz.org’s Executive Director Bryan Beninghove.  Ilene Jablonski, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Mack-Cali, wholeheartedly agrees: “This series is the product of an exciting community partnership formed to bring world-class entertainment to the residents and tenants of Jersey City.”
