Struggling Back After a Pandemic

Here's a hopeful sign that things are getting back to normal after more than a year of being in pandemic mode: Hudson Hall is reopening its performance hall this weekend.

The opening performers for the post-pandemic season are Camille Thurman and the Darrell Green Trio, who will be performing Saturday, May 29, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, May 30, at 5 p.m.

Jazz phenom Camille Thurman's prowess includes a 4-octave range earning her comparisons to legends Sarah Vaughan, Betty Carter, and Ella Fitzgerald. Also a gifted saxophonist, Thurman has been likened to tenor greats Joe Henderson and Dexter Gordon, and is also applauded for her chops as a composer. 
The Darrell Green Trio, featuring Anthony Wonsey on piano, Tom DiCarlo on bass, and Darrell Green on drums, accompanies Thurman. Her recent albums feature songs by Sarah Vaughan, Wayne Shorter, Wes Montgomery, Jimmy McHugh, Milton Nascimento, Hoagy Carmichael, Cole Porter, and others. "You're hard pressed to find rising talents more exciting than Camille Thurman whose sound is as commodious and strong as Hank Mobley's," says The New York Times.
Channeling the vibe of an intimate jazz club with the grand stage and sound of a world class theater, Hudson Hall invites guests to purchase a socially distanced table for 2 or 4 and revel (again) in the magic of live jazz.
