Area Attractions: Jazzy Sessions at the Circle (NYC Shops at Columbus Circle)

Some of New York’s most dynamic young jazz artists, including trumpeter/Wynton Marsalis protégé Riley Mulherkar and Christie Dashiell of NBC’s “The Sing-Off,’’ will serenade patrons of The Shops at Columbus Circle when the Sessions at the Circle series kicks off its six-week run July 26.

The free evening concerts (Tuesdays, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., through Aug. 30) on the second-level mezzanine are a partnership between The Shops at Columbus Circle and Jazz at Lincoln Center and showcase a range of jazz styles, from the big-band sounds of Zaccai Curtis to smoky renditions of the Great American Songbook by Allyson Briggs and classic tenor saxophone riffs from Camille Thurman.

Families taking a break from shopping won’t want to miss the Jazz for Young People session (Aug. 6), where folks of all ages are invited to swing and sway to joyous rhythms as they learn about the essence of the music.

The free Sessions at the Circle feature an impressive repertoire of musicians:

July 26, 2016 – Camille Thurman with the Darrell Green Trio
August 2, 2016 – Riley Mulherkar Quartet

August 16, 2016 – Christie Dashiell Quartet
