Smooth Jazz New York in association with Marquee Concerts is pleased to announce another star-studded line up for the Smooth Cruise series, now in its 18th year. The 2015 season takes place aboard The Hornblower Infinity, a 210-foot luxury yacht.
The cruises set sail Wednesday evenings, June 24 through September 2. The summer’s roster includes 9 nights featuring 15 of the world’s greatest contemporary jazz and R&B acts in a stunning, intimate setting with shows at 6:30 and 9:30pm. The Smooth Cruises depart from Pier 40, located at Houston Street at the West Side Highway and cruise down the Hudson, offering both world-class musical acts as well as breathtaking views of the Statue of Liberty and the New York City skyline.
“It’s great to be back on The Hornblower Infinity with the 2015 Smooth Cruises,” notes Bill Zafiros, co-founder of Smooth Jazz New York. “Our guests really appreciated last year’s move to the larger, more upscale ship featuring improved sight-lines.

Two years ago to the day that New York City embarked on a $94 million restoration of the Loew’s Kings Theatre in Flatbush, the institution reopened its doors and reclaimed its standing as Brooklyn’s largest theater. The restoration was painstaking: when it began in 2013, the theater had already been sitting vacant for four decades, a time during which looters plundered everything that wasn’t bolted down (and most of the things that were), and nature found its way into the neglected structure. “The carpets used to kind of squish when you walked around,” Jeff Greene of EverGreene Architectural Arts said recalling the building in its pre-restoration state, when, during inclement weather, water would gush through the ceiling, down the balconies, and pool amidst the theater seats.MORE INFO >>

Entering the homestretch of the memorial concert “Friends of Jeff Golub,” which ran the better part of four hours at the B. B. King Blues Club on Wednesday night, the keyboardist Jason Miles offered an encomium, brief and to the point. “Whatever he did, whether it was smooth or it was blues, there was a commitment,” he said of Mr. Golub, a crisp and stylistically fluid guitarist who died on Jan. 1 at 59.
