Join us in celebrating the Smooth Cruises’ 13th year aboard The Spirit of New York, located at Pier 61, Chelsea Piers (23rd St & West Side Hwy). Experience this one-of-a-kind LIVE JAZZ concert series as you cruise down the Hudson River taking in fantastic views of the Statue of Liberty and the breathtaking Manhattan skyline. This summer will feature ten of the world’s greatest jazz acts in an intimate setting, every Wednesday evening starting June 30th ending September 1st. The Smooth Cruises sell out quickly, so get your tickets today!
As most fans know, longtime Jazz/R&B music great Angela Bofill suffered a stroke in early 2006. Later that year she received the SoulTracks Lifetime Achievement Award and appeared to be on her way to recovery. Unfortunately, in July 2007, Angie suffered another massive stroke and was in critical condition for quite awhile.
The show will be a narrative and musical presentation of the songs most relevant to her career – songs such as This Time I’ll Be Sweeter, I’ll Try, Under the Moon and Over the Sky, Angel of the Night, Break it to me Gently, and many others will be performed by Phil Perry and Maysa. Angela will be doing on-stage narratives about the tunes with some humorous anecdotes.
We are thankful to be able to present this very special engagement as Angela Bofill makes her first public appearance in New York since 2005.
