Jazz at the Cavalier presents 3rd Season in Marriott Downtown

The 3rd season of downtown Syracuse’s over-the-hump-day jazz series will feature some new twists, designed by CNY Jazz and the Marriott Syracuse Downtown. The hours are shifting to 6:00 to 9:00 pm, with food and drink service available at 5:30. The hotel will be raffling off New Year’s Eve packages, a completely new jazz-themed signature cocktail menu will be rolled out, and an enhanced talent lineup will feature one-of-a-kind collaborations and celebrity sit-ins.

The debut installment is scheduled for Wednesday October 2nd, with Nancy Kelly and her accompanist Rick Montalbano, augmented by celebrity sit-in Jeff Stockham on trumpet. The series continues weekly, with a short holiday break, until May 13th, 2020. There is no cover or minimum.

“We’re mixing it up more this season, adding to the overall gumbo to give the gigs a party atmosphere, and a touch of the unexpected,” said Larry Luttinger, CNY Jazz director and series curator. “That kind of spontaneity is what jazz is all about. You’ll see new faces, established talent, new combinations of players, and more folks dropping in to sing or play for a tune or two, or a whole set. A new look, a new sound around that grand piano, and new tastes in food and drink – we’re keeping it fresh.”

CNY Jazz Discount Card holders will receive 10% off food and drink for all series events. For more information about discounts, contact or visit
