THE 5TH ANNUAL BJU FESTIVAL
Featuring more than 20 of your favorite NYC jazz musicians

For the past 5 years, The Brooklyn Jazz Underground (an artist-run collective) has built a solid reputation for their creative contributions to the NY jazz scene. This weekend’s 5th annual festival at the Cafe promises to be a firework of new and exciting music. The Brooklyn Jazz Underground also hosts a weekly radio show on the Progressive Radio Network and co-curates the weekly concert series, Underground Works at Sycamore in Brooklyn.

“These renegade BJU bands are comprised of intelligent composers, open- minded arrangers and free-spirited improvisers” – Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes

“To those hungering for fresh music, you’d be hard-pressed to find such a heavy dose of vital, trailblazing (not the mention youthful) jazz under one roof anywhere else”. – Saby Reyes-Kulkarni, New York Press
