The Jazz Gallery has undoubtedly done more than any other venue to further the NYC jazz/improvised music scene. Their dedication to presenting fresh and innovative artists as well as premiering new work is second to none.

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

receiving support and encouragement to premiere four new bodies of work at The Jazz Gallery.

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

help this venue secure a few pieces of updated equipment.

I have performed at the gallery. They take such good care of the people they present, and work incredibly hard on behalf New York's jazz and arts community. I couldn't think of a more deserving venue for this award.

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.

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

Seeing audiences popping up that were not interested in jazz become interested in it as a result of attending a concert at the Jazz Gallery

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

Not make any.

The jazz gallery is definitely one of the best jazz clubs in New York. It's a very unique place, giving a chance to young musicians to start a carrier in town and also for musicians who have been on the scene for awhile. Keeping a fairly low entry fee, making it easy for students and pretty much everyone on a low budget, to go and hear some of the best music in the world. The staff is very friendly and always helpful. This club definitely deserves the most support!

Jazz Gallery is certainly one of the most precious live music venues of New York City! Every city should have an efficient way to present new talent that pushes the boundaries like this place. Since the inception in 1995, Jazz Gallery has been a major contributor of support for New York's emerging artists. I along with many other great and important musicians got my start at this venue. This place attracts the very demographic that new artists are searching for, and in turn provides a hub for those who crave new, innovative and inspiring music. Non-profits like Jazz Gallery are very few and far between, but absolutely necessary to stimulate our society's culture through live music.

As a musician, pupil and listener I have personally experienced the valuable impact Jazz Gallery has on New York City's cultural infrastructure!

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

give it more money. This is what's necessary to keep this sacred place alive. Funds, funds, funds!

The Jazz Gallery has been the home to many of my musical projects over the past 8 years. In New York City, there are few venues that exist to present music from creative and/or emerging musicians. I value the Jazz Gallery as both a musician and an audience member because of the values they consistently espouse.

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

my life as a musician/performer/audience member.

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

Help secure them more funding so that they can upgrade their equipment and marketing efforts.

Jazz Gallery hosts some of the most interesting music in New York; at a time when bland commercialism is affecting art at all levels, the Jazz Gallery allows a space for artists of integrity.

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

I attended shows there.

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

Have more shows, be open more hours!
