Jazz at the Chapel embraces tradition and improvisation
Jazz at the Chapel brings some of the genres’ most talented players to the stage at this visually and acoustically spectacular space. Great jazz is usually the stuff of late-night clubs and grand concert halls, but at the Chapel Restoration you can experience all types of jazz in a historic building set on a bluff overlooking the Hudson. We encourage you to come as you are, enjoy the music, and socialize with musicians and fellow jazz fans over wine and cheese. Our past performers include such luminaries as trumpeter Jon-Erik Kellso, genius multi-instrumentalist Scott Robinson, stride pianist Dalton Ridenhour, and Garrison-born gypsy jazz guitarist, Sara L’Abriola and her quartet.

Born in Detroit but long based in New York City, Rod Williams is a renowned pianist, keyboardist and composer, with degrees in electronic music and interactive performance from SUNY Brooklyn College. A skillful accompanist who has worked with Cassandra Wilson, David Murray, Henry Threadgill, Geri Allen, James Carter, Julius Hemphill, Ronnie Burrage, Marcus Belgrave, and Tulivu Donna Cumberbatch among many others, Williams’ own highly original work is under-appreciated–as Peter Watrous put it in the New York Times, “Rod Williams is one of the many musicians in New York who toil in the background, but shouldn’t. Mr. Williams deserves to be heard in his own context more often”.
