The Jazz Gallery is an essential organization for the NYC jazz scene and a standard bearer for the world to look to when it comes to showcasing innovation and progress in composition, improvisation, and performance from the artists they present.

They provide an invaluable service through
presenting artists both new and established in an environment that fosters creativity and integrity.

As a first time bandleader, The Jazz Gallery walked me through all the necessary steps to get the most out of my performance both from a musical and professional standpoint. Their guidance and help were invaluable in making my performance a success and helped my project gain greater visibility.

Thank you!

The Jazz Gallery is one of the most important breeding grounds for improvised music worldwide. Their programming is audacious and varied. Most importantly, it is an established venue in New York City that is not afraid to take chances by giving younger musicians the opportunity to lead a band. This is an incredibly rare feat. Having been able to perform at the Jazz Gallery has been of invaluable importance to me as a musician.

The Jazz Gallery is THE most important place for the development of jazz music in New York City. Virtually all of the major movements and innovations in jazz over the past decade were initiated at the Jazz Gallery. It has long had a reputation as an incubator of the finest talent, where musicians are encouraged to develop their craft, which by definition shapes the development of the wider art form in a profound and lasting way. The Jazz Gallery is directly responsible for shaping the NYC and therefore the global jazz music scene. Personally speaking, it has provided me with countless opportunities to perform and try out new ideas and new music. I have benefitted immensely from all of the opportunities the Jazz Gallery has provided me, and it has been an integral part of my development as an artist. I know that countless other musicians feel the same way. Simply the best and most important organization that exists for jazz music today, anywhere.

The Jazz Gallery is easily my favorite place to hear music or to play music in New York City. The work they do is outstanding in promoting new artists and it has become one of the most important cultural institutions in the city, if not the country. It has given many young jazz musicians a platform to experiment, yielding some of the most creative music happening today, which in turn has kickstarted many young careers. The integrity of what they do and the music always remains intact. A very important place.

The Great!

There is nowhere else in New York City that does what The Jazz Gallery does. No other venue is as thoughtfully curated and offers as many services to its musical family and its music loving patrons. As a musician relatively new to the city and the jazz community, The Jazz Gallery's support of my music and my career has been invaluable. Going way beyond offering my band a place to play, they have opened their doors in off hours for rehearsals and have even offered critical advice and co-writen grant proposals with me. They are one-of-a-kind, and a necessity to New York's music community.

As the musician I have had the opportunity to present me in in Jazz Gallery. The personnel offers clear information about the programmatic and logistic aspects of the contracting. The space promotes an open, diverse cultural dynamics to all the musical styles with great level.
As the
guitarist, arranger, singer and composer of the duet Gema and Pavel I have had the opportunity to promote the concept of the Afro-Cuban music in NY through my presentations in the Jazz Gallery. They provided a cultural scene without parallels in that city. Is a supportive, welcoming, and comfortable environment with the professionals of the music and its followers.

The Great!

My musical work has been noticeable in the cultural scene of NY in part thanks to the sponsorship that the Jazz Gallery has carried out before each presentation. The people that have listened me there they have become future followers or are fans of my work that have had the opportunity to enjoy it in an environment with highly quality acoustics and of a lot of comfort for them.

Jazz Gallery is a space with the one that I count for future presentations of my work and as a client I have enjoying musicians of highly caliber. Desire that more places can assume the cultural scene with the high level that the Jazz Gallery does it.

Of course living in New York, it's easy to get spoiled by all the great clubs and music venues. That said, Jazz Gallery stands out as an unique atmosphere, where the jazz lover can enjoy world class musicians, in an intimate setting, in which artists are invited to explore and experiment beyond what they might be able to do in other venues...
Because the Jazz Gallery survives not solely on ticket sales, the space is able to and has become famous for providing fertile ground in which new projects, concepts, and modes of expression within the jazz idiom can take root and be shared.

I'm proud to have performed on the stage, and am always fulfilled and delighted when I have the privilege of attending one of their always outstanding concerts. Certainly unique in it's field, (in fact in the U.S. there are VERY few venues operating at such a successful and publicly accesibe level)

The Jazz Gallery deserves 10 stars in my opinion

The Great!

The Gallery has become a laboratory over the last decade, nurturing new ideas and offering a forum for their implementation. Improvised music is one of the most fascinating arts around, and the process of presenting jazz in a non commercial manner has given the Gallery a unique persona. Plus, the sense of community the space has created has widened the pool of participants. There are a number of aesthetic slants at play during their annual calendar, and brings together a disparate cross section of artistic sensibilities.

The Great!

several ways. i often attend concerts at the jazz gallery and blog about the music heard there.
