Jonathan Butler and Gerald Albright on The Smooth Cruise

Thursday, June 22, 2023 @ 6:30pm

Pier 40
40 Westside Hwy. and Houston Street, New York, NY 10038

Smooth Jazz New York with Smooth Jazz New Jersey present Jonathan Butler and Gerald Albright on The Smooth Cruise on June 22, 2023. The cruise sails from Pier 40 (Westside Hwy. and Houston Street) in New York, NY. Boarding is at 6:30pm; the cruise departs at 7:30pm. There is a buffet and cash bar available on board. Enjoy the sights and sounds aboard the stunning Cornucopia which features a state of the art sound system and multiple floors of entertainment. Cruise the Hudson River and take in amazing views of New York Harbor. Enjoy great music in an intimate setting plus the glorious NYC skyline!

After 31 consecutive seasons, the Smooth Cruise became a casualty of COVID and ended in the summer of 2019. Originally named the CD101.9 Smooth Cruise, this unique music experience was founded by Maplewood resident Rich Engel and Tribune Broadcasting’s New York Radio Station CD101.9 (WQCD).

With the demise of the station, the series continued as the Smooth Cruise produced by Smooth Jazz New York. This Summer, the Smooth Cruise returns to New York Harbor in a big way on a spacious yacht, The Cornucopia Majesty. This beauty sports elegance and a capacity of 1100 persons.

With the New York skyline as a backdrop, two icons of Contemporary Jazz, South African Jonathan Butler, renowned R&B Jazz fusion Vocalist and Acoustic Guitarist, will perform with his own quintet, followed by Saxophonist and double Grammy winner Gerald Albright and his unique group.

The Cornucopia Majesty combines spacious elegance with great music, views, food, and drink, making this sailing experience one to remember.
