The Jazz Gallery is one of the most important platforms for jazz musicians in the city. It provides the invaluable service of giving voice to the creative process of many talented and deserving artists. As a musician, I can attest to the positive and inspiring effects this has had on me personally, and on many of my peers. It is directly responsible for much of my compositional output, since each time I've played there as a leader, I've been inspired to premiere some new piece, or to try some idea that would perhaps otherwise never have been heard. It also feels like one of the only venues in the city that is run by people who genuinely care about the art form and it's future. This is something that is sadly rare in our time. Many thanks to the Jazz Gallery and the people who look after it!

The organization is amazing! The only thing I can think of that might benefit the venue would be a slight improvement of the sound of the room. Still, it's one of my favorite places to play.

I've had the opportunity to work at the Jazz Gallery several times over the years. It is one of the few places in New York where you can hear great live music without the distractions of food and or drinks servers. It exist purely for the music. I love the Gallery...It keeps getting better and better.

without the jazz gallery there is no jazz scene of today , period. Over the last eleven or so years i have been fortunate to witness the develop of many who are considered todays pioneers of the this beautiful art form. In todays ever growing environment of internet based social media we need places like this to continue to evolve as humans. We need a place that supports ARTIST ( very different from musicians ) to liberate us from our ignorance. Artist who challenge us. Artist who force us to confront ourselves. The jazz gallery is this. Congrats To the JAZZ GALLERY !!!!!

The Jazz Gallery is one of the only remaining places in New York City (or anywhere, for that matter) to provide a quality location for young emerging jazz musicians, composers, and bandleaders to be heard. These budding artists are provided a place where they feel free to try out new music, a new ensemble, and experiment with their craft in front of a live, paying and receptive audience--this imperative to a musicians development, yet is almost impossible to do anywhere else. Coupling this with performances by more established artists creates a truly unique venue for both musicians and the listening public alike. Best of all perhaps, is the fact that the Jazz Gallery isn't prejudiced toward one type or 'style' of jazz--many different sub genres of jazz are featured, representing the many diverse strands of jazz and improvisational music that exist today. I have had the fortune to perform here on many occasions, and debuted music from my first CD here. The Jazz Gallery is truly one of a kind!

The Jazz Gallery continually serves as an exemplary model of excellence in the field of jazz. The organization is a vital contributor to the New York City jazz scene, not only championing up and coming jazz musicians, but challenging them by commissioning new works which receive their premiere performances there. To my knowledge there is no other institution in New York like it. Some of the great jazz artists of tomorrow cut their teeth at the Jazz Gallery and the ones who HAVE moved upward in their careers still consider the Gallery their home.

do nothing to change it. At first I thought maybe they would benefit more by advertising more, but part of what makes the Jazz Gallery special is that it's just slightly below the radar.

The Jazz gallery is providing a neutral environment for musicians to develop their craft in. I believe it is directly responsible for a huge chunk of the innovation that is currently happening in the jazz community in New York City, which in turn is spreading throughout the rest of the world.

The Jazz Gallery is one of the best places to hear live music New York City. The careful attention to programming and diversity of music makes The Jazz Gallery an important institution in the New York City jazz community. Additionally, not serving food and drinks makes the gallery a listening room, something that has become increasingly rare in the difficult economic climate. An outstanding pillar of the jazz community, the gallery serves as an important home base for lots of musicians, and plays host to an active community of artists.

The Jazz Gallery is one of the best music venues in New York. Given how competitive the jazz scene is and how expensive venues often are for the general public, it's an invaluable resource both for musicians and fans. You get the sense that musicians really have a chance to try new things and work together in a supportive environment. Listeners hear top-notch music for a reasonable price and in a casual venue. In such an expensive and demanding city, jazz needs places like the Gallery to evolve.

The Jazz Gallery is one of the mos important music venue in New York City, as it places artistic concerns above all.
Since its inception it has presented a wide stylistic range of jazz,
with the musicians being of the highest caliber, who are free to present their artistic vision without
compromise. The Jazz Gallery also supports new jazz composition, and has commissioned important new works that received their debut there.
And its wonderful art exhibits around various theme often inspires listeners to hear the music in new ways, just as the music can guide us to a deeper understanding of visual art. The Jazz Gallery is indispensable to the jazz community of New York City and the world.
