The Jazz Gallery provides an international cultural center which traces and promotes current developments in jazz. The Gallery’s primary focus is on the youngest generation of professional jazz musicians, whom we nurture by giving them an audience for their performances and a stage upon which to assemble their bands. The Gallery also encourages established musicians to present new projects and collaborate in performances with emerging artists. In addition to very high quality live jazz music, the Gallery presents and exhibits visual arts, theater and poetry inspired by jazz.

Reviews for The Jazz Gallery
When I first moved back to the Apple, I headed to the Gallery because I knew the acts they presented and wanted to hear them live. I found myself experiencing many of what I call those "special nights," when the musicians and the audience are all lifted into the air by their combined presence and the music that generates.

So it goes without saying that I am proud of the chance i have to contribute whatever I can.
