Jazz in the Park returns to Spruce Street Harbor this summer with Laurin Talese, Jeff Bradshaw and more
It’s not summertime in Philly until Spruce Street Harbor Park opens for the season — and with live music to fill up your warm days on the waterfront. The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation just unveiled the lineup for Jazz in the Park, one of several concert series SSHP will host throughout the summer.
The free series features a performance from a different local jazz artist on the second Sunday of each month, from May through September. Singer-songwriter Laurin Talese will kick things off this Sunday, May 12. An alum of UArts, Talese released her debut album Gorgeous Chaos in 2016. The following months will bring saxophonist Marcus Strickland, Cuban composer Arturo Stable, soul trombonist Jeff Bradshaw and more to the park. See the full lineup below, and find more information on Jazz in the Park on the XPN Concert Calendar.
