A new jazz club, featuring emerging jazz artists and established headliners, has recently opened in Tarrytown. Jazz Forum is a community-based performance and exhibition space that will present the programs of Jazz Forum Arts. The robust summer lineup includes headlining artists on Friday and Saturday nights, such as singer/pianist Freddy Cole (July 28 & 29) and the bebop beats of the Barry Harris Trio (August 4 & 5). “Brazilian Music Sundays” brings Brazilian groups, from the sounds of samba, jazz and funk of Itaiguara Brandao and his quartet (July 30) to jazz harmonica virtuoso Hendrik Meurkens and his quartet (August 13). Once monthly, on Saturday afternoons, Jazz Forum offers workshops for music lovers of all ages that explore various forms of jazz. In addition to musical performances, the club has a full bar and light fare cuisine, as well as a rotating exhibit of artworks by local and regional artists. For more info, visit: jazzforumarts.org.
