Celebrate all things jazz with music by local legends on Wednesdays in Hudson River Park!

About the Artist

A true original, saxophonist George Braith has brightened jazz with his innovations—from his classic 1960s soul jazz recordings for Blue Note and Prestige, to his 1970s presentations at the lower Manhattan club Musart, which he ran, to his own, original instrument the Braithophone, which fuses soprano and alto saxophones into one horn.

He has worked with many of the greats (Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, Grant Green, Roy Haynes) and has even been commemorated in mosaic tile in the walls of the 2nd Ave subway. Well into his seventh decade in jazz, Braith is a living legend not to be missed.

About Jazz at Pier 84

As a spirited tribute to NYC’s storied history of jazz, this Park-favorite series features local legends in a lineup of free performances on Manhattan’s riverfront. Combining smooth tunes with beautiful Hudson River Park evenings, Jazz at Pier 84 keeps music an integral part of our public programming, thanks to our sponsor the Jazz Foundation of America.
