The Katonah Museum of Art invites you to enjoy an early summer evening of art and jazz with the second Shades of Jazz concert of the new season. As curator for the series, legendary guitarist John Scofield presents some of the brightest talents in jazz today and jams with them at the end of each performance in the Museum's Sculpture Garden.

Admission is $10 for members, $20 for nonmembers, and includes complimentary beer and wine. Along with chairs and blankets, guests are invited to pack a picnic dinner to enjoy during the performance.

Guitarist and producer Eric Krasnos is a virtuosic powerhouse in the jazz, funk, and hip-hop communities. He is a founding member of Soulive, the globetrotting instrumental soul-funk trio who have opened for rock royalty including The Rolling Stones and Dave Matthews Band. Krasno is also one-half of the production company Fyre Dept., best known for cutting tracks with 50 Cent, Justin Timberlake, and Redman. Nigel Hall, a self-described “guardian of soul music" and the dynamic front man of Soulive will join Krasno for the concert.
