Smooth Jazz New York Announces 2014 Smooth Cruise Schedule… Plus a New Night & New Boat
Smooth Jazz New York is pleased to announce a star-studded line up for the All New Smooth Cruise series, now in its 17th year. The 2014 season marks a change to a new boat, The Hornblower Infinity, a luxurious 210-foot luxury yacht.
The cruises set sail Thursday evenings, June 12 through August 28. The summer’s roster includes 11 nights featuring 19 of the world’s greatest contemporary jazz acts in a superb, intimate setting with shows at 6:30 and 9:30pm. The Smooth Cruises depart from Pier 40, located at Houston Street at the West Side Highway and cruise down the Hudson, not only offering exceptional music but breathtaking views of the Statue of Liberty and the New York City skyline.
“We’re very excited about our new cruise night and new boat. The Hornblower Infinity is a much larger ship than past years, offering our guests improved sightlines to view an amazing array of acts. It’s a fresh twist to our annual tradition of presenting the world’s best contemporary jazz out on scenic Hudson harbor,” notes Bill Zafiros, co-founder of Smooth Jazz New York.
