There's probably not a place in the world like The Jazz Gallery. It not only has some of the most cutting-edge programming of any music venue in NYC, but it also puts the spotlight on young, rising artists. They first gave me an opportunity to perform there when I was 16, and the warmth, the enshrined history, and the love of the people working and running The Jazz Gallery make it, to this day, my favorite place to play. Every show I've seen there, I feel in awe of what I'm seeing and listening to, and so happy to see all the audience members relishing in this great and meaningful art. Thank you so much for what you do, it's truly amazing.

The Jazz Gallery is a innovative place for young and established jazz musicians in NYC and around the globe. I heard some of the most forth-thinking music there, some of the most beautiful and sensitive music and some of the most exciting music there...I LOVE THE JAZZ GALLERY!

My performance at The Jazz Gallery (with Jonny King, Larry Grenadier and Tony Reedus) in the late 1990s is one of my most treasured memories. The atmosphere was convivial, the audience supportive and the staff most professional. The presence of the old Bradley's piano made the night extra special.

Since then the organization has grown in size and prestige, developing new programs and encouraging the creation of new music. Rio Sakairi does a great job with the programming.

I look forward to visiting the new venue on my next trip to NYC.

Ways to make it better...

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

...expand and establish an endowment for its composer residencies.

The Jazz Gallery has been home to me since i moved to the city four years ago. It's a venue that I feel fortunate to call "home" and their fostering of young talent is truly remarkable. Music is number one at the Gallery and I've learned so much from peers, elders, and mentors by hearing them at countless shows there. It is one of the most important places for music and the development of artists/groups not only in New York City, but in the world!

Like many that have posted, I only have the most positive things to say about the Jazz Gallery. So many in fact that it's difficult to choose, and even more difficult to not be utterly repetitive. I guess what always leaps out at me is the absolute consistency of excellence in their programming. When scrolling through their future and former shows there's an incessant internal "Wow, I want to see that!" that chimes without end. There's no other club in the city that offers that kind of attention to the scene and with such an accurate and thoughtful barometer. But what makes that extra special, is that the club manages to maintain its reputation as having the best shows nightly, while offering chances to a slew of young and upcoming artists that might not get the opportunity to showcase their talent and vision. It cannot be overstated how essential this is to the community, and the JG pulls it off with grace and a ludicrous success rate. Having both played there and sat innumerable times in the audience, I couldn't recommend this organization enough, or speak an higher to it's impact in the community.

I am still pretty new to the New York Jazz scene but the Jazz Gallery is the single most important venue/community in my life. I think this statement would ring true to many of some of the most respected jazz musicians today, both upcoming and established. This is New York, so to hear amazing music by amazing musicians is really nothing special by itself but the Gallery is something more, much more. It is a place that allows growth. Where musicians can feel free of pressure and really push themselves. I will never forget the night Walter Smith played at the gallery. It was like a scene out of a jazz history film. Everyone was there, I mean everyone. The energy from the audience alone was so crushing. This is something that you do not find every where. Musicians as well as fans are drawn to the Gallery because of the love and support that resides there. Another special night for me was the night I lead my band at the Jazz Gallery. Stepping on the stage that I watched so many amazing players play was something that touched me down to my very core. I was literally stepping into the history of that stage and all the music that had every been played and would be played was there with me. I can never repay the Gallery for what they have given me. All the music, friendships and the opportunity to play are all priceless. All I can give them is my thanks and praise. The Jazz Gallery is a shinning example of how to support the arts. It takes more than money or even a space. You have to be behind it 100%. Slow nights, long nights, difficult players and bad weather. If you stand for the music it will stand for you.So I am standing firmly behind the Jazz Gallery and I am most certainly not alone.

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.

The Great!

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

I cannot think of another venue which offers to the general public and the musicians community what The Jazz Gallery does. As far as I'm concerned it is THE ONLY Jazz club in NYC that: - has the highest stantards choosing the bands that it presents, while allowing the younger generation to have a chance to present it's work - that offers accessible prices to see top-notch artists - that supports the artist community with various grants - that encourages artists to innovate... I can go on and on. I cannot think of any other jazz organization I would support but this one.Sincerely, Pedro Giraudo

As a musician, I consider myself blessed to be part of the Gallery¹s family, to have performed there with pride on many occasions with my large ensemble, the Pedro Giraudo Jazz Orchestra, which the Gallery recognized as important enough to inaugurate its Large Ensemble Series, and through the Gallery¹s efforts, I was given a composer¹s grant to write the new music that will be the centerpiece of my new CD. The debt I owe to the Gallery is immeasurable.

The changes I would make require money, which are all related to matters not related to how the organization is run, but it's facilities for example.
