Live Jazz will be heard throughout the evening on Friday, September 12, 2014, as a group of legendary musicians bring their love and concern for the elderly to new heights on the rooftop of Flushing House in Queens!

"Jazz Up In The Sky" takes place up on the roof at Flushing House, New York State's largest, not-for-profit, "Independent Living" retirement community, located in Flushing, Queens.

Composer and guitarist Hernan Romero's music is famous for its sensuous, passionate, romantic and inescapably infectious sounds.
