"Bridging the gap, from the blues, to Jazz to Rap" - Nas ft. Olu Dara
Jazz Under the Bridge is a branded music-based experience, connected by the iconography of New York City’s captivating bridge network. Covering a host of local, coastal neighborhoods with iconic bridges as backdrops for culture, Jazz Under the Bridge forms as a live radio mix show, recording imprint, promotional team, and brand of producers, artists & resident DJs, currently based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Incorporated in the county of Kings, New York, Jazz Under the Bridge began through appreciation & preservation of live, improvisational-based music within a digital age. Inspired within the halls of the Williamsburg Music Center, along with the flows of Poetic Thrust Wednesday’s at Loosie Rouge, Jazz Under the Bridge focuses on examining and cultivating a new-age, jazz-oriented hip-hop scene within New York City, as a fully immersive live music tradition; We form to support & refine established local talent with traditional and untraditional venue spaces, whom advocate rights and support for musicians, DJ's (we love you the most) and music lovers alike. The premise stems from our community's deep appreciation for Jazz music and its quality of being fundamentally American made, with worldwide cultural influence.
