Few art forms are more American than the blues, and SummerStage’s opening night in Central Park will showcase three very different—but equally soulful—takes on the genre. Paul Janeway’s Alabama eight-piece St. Paul and the Broken Bones updates the classic soul of the 1960s with strings, a choir, and synthesizers. They’ve spent the last decade winning over fans one club at a time with an infectious energy that led NPR to name them “one of the nation’s best live bands.” Their latest LP, last year’s The Alient Coast, adds a bit more grit to their sound and introduces new psychedelic and stoner-rock influences. Brooklyn’s Say She She is a seven-piece band led by three women, named in homage to the Nile Rodgers band Chic. They’re adding a modern twist to girl groups and three-part harmonies, like in their latest disco-flavored single “Reeling” released earlier this spring. The bill is rounded out by Mwenso and the Shakes, a joyful Harlem-based jazz, soul, and blues band that draws from a wide spectrum of Black ancestral diasporic music with an afro-futuristic lens.

Date and Time: Saturday, June 10, 2023, 05:00 PM – 10:00 PM

Location: SummerStage, Central Park  Rumsey Playfield, Manhattan, 10021

The storied downtown jazz label Blue Note will bring together multiple generations of jazz innovators in Central Park. Headlining is bassist, composer, and jazz fusion pioneer Stanley Clarke with his 4Ever band, renowned for his unique percussive electric bass playing style; the five-time GRAMMY winner was named a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in 2022. GRAMMY winner Kenny Garrett is a post-bop saxophonist, flutist, and composer who cut his teeth as a youth in the Duke Ellington Orchestra and shined as a member of Miles Davis’ band in the late 80s-early 90s; he too, is a newly minted NEA Jazz Master. Brandee Younger is arguably contemporary jazz’s most formidable harpist. The GRAMMY-nominated composer, curator, and NYU professor seamlessly injects the harp into arrangements and venues where it has historically been overlooked. They’re supported by DJ Logic, a Bronx-born nu-jazz turntablist.

This show will feature a special performance in collaboration with Works & Process. As part of this partnership, this season at SummerStage Ladies of Hip-Hop will perform at various shows. Ladies of Hip-Hop Dance Collective (LDC) is an all-female intergenerational dance collective that creates dance works illuminating the strength, power and diversity of women in Hip-Hop.
