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.

Like many other jazz musicians coming up in the NYC jazz scene, the Jazz Gallery gave me my first opportunity to lead a band a NY jazz venue. Their mission, which is to support the future of jazz, is so very important to not only the jazz community, but to the arts community as a whole. When you go to see shows at the Jazz Gallery, its just you and the musicians. Its so much more than just a music venue, its a community center thats open to anyone. Places like this are so necessary in the often-pretentious music scene. By supporting the Jazz Gallery you are investing in the future.

The Jazz Gallery gave me the opportunity to present my band/original musician. I've also played there with many other fellow musicians. Lots of great memories watching shows there and just hanging out. The staff is like family to many of us jazz musicians in the NY scene.

I love Jazz, and I generally don't enjoy Jazz clubs. The typical combination of cave-like ambiance and mandatory drinks is irritating. The Jazz gallery offers a great mix of emerging and established artists, in a simple, pleasant environment that lets the audience focus on the music. More clubs should be like this.

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!

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.

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

The Jazz Gallery is a historic space devoted solely to creative freedom and innovation in music. Many years from now, when we're long gone, future generations will be able to track the break-throughs in jazz and many other art forms to places like the Jazz Gallery. Musicians and music-lovers alike need and deserve a place to explore and expand the art and of course, to enjoy music without the pressure to purchase and consume, or draw a crowd.

The atmosphere is respective and professional, clean and humble. There are no frills and no extra gimmicks, just great music by the brightest and brilliant artists.

P.S. its a great date spot.

My husband and I have been going to the Jazz Gallery for years and became members a couple of years ago. In addition to offering a nurturing environment for artists, the JG provides a sense of community for listeners who love jazz and who rely on live performance for restoration of the spirit and senses. It's intimate, welcoming, free of distraction and attracts interesting people across the spectrum of age, class, race and culture. The entry price is affordable enough to warrant frequent visits and members enjoy additional benefits, including an annual holiday party. The JG is a rare GEM and a tremendous asset to NYC.

When I think of the Jazz Gallery I think of cutting edge music, experimentation with fusion no matter the types of music, and community. When I moved to New York City in 2004, the Jazz Gallery was not only a place that I frequented often to check out great music, but it was also where I played my first gig in New York. I have always felt a great sense of family within the organization, which makes the audience feel comfortable while listening, and pushes the musicians to try new things with no fear of being judged.
