ABOUT THE NEW YORK HOT JAZZ FESTIVAL
New York Hot Jazz Festival is an annual New York City multi-stage marathon showcasing traditional jazz from New Orleans hot jazz through the big band swing era, as well as Gypsy swing and ragtime. The festival was launched in 2013 as a day-long celebration for New York’s hot jazz and swing communities, but has expanded its mission to year-round presentations of and advocacy for traditional jazz through various collaborations and partnerships, including curating and hosting an annual dedicated hot jazz stage at NYC Winter Jazzfest. The festival has encouraged and supported presentation of new projects and formation of new hot jazz bands, a few of which have already become mainstays of NYC's jazz scene. New York Hot Jazz Festival is produced by the Hot Jazz Productions.
