The Jazz Gallery is an extremely important venue for young emerging artist on the NYC jazz scene. They have provided a performance space for 20 years where musicians can create and develop there craft. Not only have they been responsible for giving a start to many world renown musicians and artist, they are a key component to the evolution of this music and keeping it alive. There strong since of community and helping one another makes no other venue like this. I'm happy to call The Jazz Gallery family. Please support this venue not just for NYC but for the world.

Jazz Gallery is home to many veterans as well as up-and-comers in the jazz world. To me it exemplifies music for music's sake! It is innovative in its programming. Jazz Gallery is vital to have a place where musicians can experiment and feel free to do so. I feel grateful that I am amongst the community of listeners and appreciators of the music. I personally recommend Jazz Gallery as a venue to anyone who wants to hear the same quality music as a Village Vanguard or Blue Note, but who doesn't want to spend $60/ set. Jazz Gallery is affordable and the experience of hearing such great music in an intimate space should be a destination for anybody who loves jazz!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Keep doing what they are doing.

The Jazz Gallery is the most non-pretentious Jazz venue in New York. It has nurtured my abilities to create new works of art in my drawings that I do while musicians are in performance. In some ways, I would not have such a close connection with art and music were it not for Jazz Gallery. Sure I can make art on any subject and I can listen to music at home. But Jazz Gallery is about opportunities to listen to great music as it is taking shape with importance placed on the musicians development. In this way, I have become a better artist and a better appreciator of this great form and ever-changing music.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In my work and in personal relationships with those that put music first and foremost.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not change that much as the board is always fostering new talent and expanding its ability to inspire new works.

I became a volunteer at The Jazz Gallery after four years of frequent attending of events. The music and events I saw at The Jazz Gallery completely changed my life. My ideas on creative music changed and I discovered many new artists that went on to have big impacts on my musical career. Getting the change to volunteer at The Jazz Gallery and help with these events was a truly special opportunity that i feel lucky to have had.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the many customers that commented on how wonderful of an organisation The Jazz Gallery is. They all felt that The Jazz Gallery was a special place and would then go on to bring many of their friends.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the community programs that they have started to develop and if funds allowed to continue to offer the amazing artist-in-residence series.

The Jazz Gallery has been a great venue that has supported the present and future of jazz music for years. As a jazz musician that got my first opportunity as a leader in this venue, I will be the first to say that it is extremely important to the future of jazz music, as most venues in NY are not very open to new, young voices with new things to say. This is not only important to the artist, but also to the jazz community as a whole. Because not only does it give many opportunities to new artists, but it also brings new music and artist for jazz fans to experience

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have developed a fan base through my performances as a leader. I've also been able to develop my musical concept simply by having the opportunity to perform here.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't

When I discovered the Jazz Gallery, I was so impressed by the quality of the music and the welcoming ambiance, I became a regular. My admiration led me to volunteer, where I now help with membership. I believe so strongly in the mission, to promote and nurture the next generation of jazz artists, that I proudly serve as the Jazz Gallery's biggest cheerleader!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The music I have heard. many new compositions and arrangements, enrich my life. And many of the musicians and jazz fan I have met at the Jazz Gallery are my dear friends now.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wish them steady funding and more of it so they can implement even more of their great ideas that support and encourage the musicians.
