Soaking in the warm New York weather? We are too! And you know what that means… Smooth Cruise season is nearly here!

This year marks our 14th season of sailing the Hudson with top jazz acts. Time flies when you’re having fun! For 2011, we’re pleased to bring back a bevy of contemporary jazz faves – including kicking off the season with Jonathan Butler (6/29), followed by Bobby Caldwell (7/6), Spyro Gyra (713), The Rippingtons (7/27), Najee (8/3), Kirk Whalum on a hot double bill with Jeff Golub (8/10), Norman Brown for a dazzling double header with Richard Elliot (8/17), and closing out the season with Pieces of a Dream (8/31). New to our cruise series is the amazing Rachelle Ferrell (8/24) plus a special evening with Jazz Attack, featuring a trio of favorites: Gerald Albright, Peter White and Rick Braun (7/20).

We’ll also be announcing a very special Smooth Cruise Encore for October in the weeks ahead. No hints right now… it would spoil the surprise!

The luxe Spirit of New York cruise ship is great place for jazz fans to hear the music they can no longer enjoy on NY radio, move to the tunes, take in breathtaking skyline views, kick back and relax, or mix n’ mingle. (You minglers know who you are!) Don’t forget there’s also delicious food and drink to round out your Sunset or Moonlight cruise for a total evening out on the town – or should we say, water. There are also a limited number of Smooth Cruise Value Packs available – Cruise/Dinner/1 Drink/Bonus Jazz CD… all for $75! (That’s a savings of more than $25.) Click here for details.

Remember, Smooth Cruises make great gifts *for Dads, Grads, Birthdays and any other special night with the smooth jazz lovers you know.

We’re excited about bringing this sensational line up to the Harbor — *every Wednesday from June 29 thru August 31 — and look forward to seeing everyone on the beautiful Spirit of New York.
