This Is Our Music celebrates the development and inspiration of improvised music and the Jazz of tomorrow. Curated with a focus on traditional roots and innovation, This Is Our Music proudly nurtures a broad inclusive community of forward looking music.  Rooted with reverence to the music’s past the series proudly references the genre defying album by Ornette Coleman.  Offering his blessing, Ornette’s son, Denardo affirms, “This Is Our Music is a seminal album and title by my father, this series continues in that expression of openness and creative exploration.” Bringing musicians and audiences together in the spirit of open musical exploration, This Is Our Music presents carefully curated and compelling programming of new and established acts across many genres. The series will be the umbrella presenting organization of the NYC Winter Jazzfest and new programming throughout the year in New York City and beyond.
