Jazz on the Terrace at the Parrish, organized by Richie Siegler, features live, outdoor performances by accomplished jazz artists with a backdrop of the East End sunset.

Grammy nominated Brazilian virtuoso bassist and composer Nilson Matta and his trio kick off the Parrish Art Museum’s outdoor series Jazz on the Terrace.
