Fotografiska will kick off the first unfiltered jazz festival with Erik Deutsch and Stuart Bogie Quartet

On July 7, Fotografiska New York will host the first night of its first unfiltered jazz festival. The evening will include the release of the eighth album by keyboardist and composer Erik Deutsch The White Night. Additionally, the first night of the Unfiltered Jazz Festival will also feature a performance by the Stuart Bogie Quartet.

The unfiltered jazz festival offers five nights of intimate musical performances spread throughout the month of July. The first evening will begin with a series of jams led by Bogie and his latest improv band: Miles Francis (drums), Spencer Zahn (bass) and Adelyn Strei (clarinet, alto saxophone, guitar). The night will mark Bogie’s return to Fotografiska after his residency in 2021.

After the first set of music, Deutsch will celebrate the release of his latest album alongside his band: Avi Bortnick (guitar), Freddy Cash (bass), Brian Drye (trombone), Tony Mason (drums) and Mike McGinnis (reeds) . The title of the album, The White Night, translates to nuit blanche, an expression that the artist associates with a white night or the night that ends in daylight.

After the opening night of the Unfiltered Jazz Festival, the second night will take place a week later, on July 14, and will include an evening with the Jennifer Hartwick Quartet. Hartswick will perform with Joe Davidian (piano), Dezron Douglas (bass) and Conor Elmes (drums).

On the third night, July 20, attendees can expect music from the Jeff Beale Trio, featuring Steve Cardenas and John Patitucci. Then on July 21, Brandee Younger and Joel Ross will offer expressive musical interpretations.

Finally, on July 22, members of the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Premik Russell Tubbs (woodwinds), alongside Vin Scialla (drums/percussion), Anupam Shobhakar (double neck fretless guitar), Neel Murgai (sitar), Joe Deninzon (violin) , Dan Asher (bass) and special guests will pay tribute to guitar icon John McLaughlin.
