‘Jazz & Colors’ to Fill Central Park With Standards, By JAMES C. MCKINLEY JR.
Central Park will host an unusual jazz concert in November as the fall foliage reaches its peak: 30 ensembles have been asked to play a collection of standards at different locations around the park, creating a sprawling concert with a communal set list, organizers said.
November 10th is free and open to the public and will suffuse the park with jazz without temporary stages, fences, barriers, portable toilets and other trappings of large concerts. The project was inspired, he said, by “The Gates,” the public art installation by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in February 2005 that involved 7,500 cloth-covered portals on the park’s pathways.
