The Jazz Gallery is a marvelous resource for modern jazz ~ we have had relaxed live music experiences here on our yearly trips to New York City. One of the founders, trumpet phenom Roy Hargrove, who died recently, was instrumental in establishing a culture of jazz generosity, which I feel is essential to continue in his name. An excellent nonprofit that deserves your support!

The Jazz Gallery has shaped my artistic perspective in many since I have moved to New York City 3 years ago. This is not only the performance venue but it is a venue where the idea is shared and being inspired by the musician in the scene. I have witnessed so many artists who are now established well around the world started to experiment and share their idea here. I can say with confidence that The Jazz Gallery stand out among other jazz performance venue and the club as an important driver of the jazz music around the world.

Been coming to the Jazz Gallery regularly for years now. The music and artwork being showcased is always of a high quality and has clearly been selected with great care. The staff is welcoming and helpful and the overall atmosphere is exactly what one desires in an important music venue like the Gallery. It has become my second home.

The very first jazz show I experienced in New York was at the Jazz Gallery location on Hudson for a Gretchen Parlato set. This fueled my hunger for more NYC jazz and ever since I visit 1 to 2 times per year. I know I wasn't supposed to take photos, sorry : )

The Jazz Gallery is one of the only prestigious venues in the USA I'm aware of that strongly promotes and encourages creativity among younger composers in Jazz music. TJG presents daring music and provides reasonable means to help emerging artists in their search. The entire staff is on board with this vision and because of this The Jazz Gallery has become a fertile community hub for countless listeners and players.

Jazz Gallery is The most valuable Jazz venue in New York City. If you are a Jazz musician in NYC, your debut concert should be made at the Jazz Gallery. Then you are considered to be a real NY artist. From Emerging artist to well accomplished musician, this is everyone's favorite venue.

The Jazz Gallery is home to some of the most forward-thinking musicians in New York. It's a place where music can be premiered with those of the highest caliber, with adequate artistic, emotional, and financial support. It's not only about the music, as the space is usually adorned with photos or pieces from a visual artist, which completes the energy of the space just perfectly.

Rio and the staff at the Gallery are always warmly welcoming the next generation of musicians, treating everyone with respect and giving them positive energy. This comes down to allowing musicians to use the space for rehearsals, early sound checks, and simply as a place to come and hang.

For the listeners, it's always about the music and artistic vision. There are never any set of guidelines for what your music needs to be, it just needs to reflect you as an artist. This kind of love is difficult to find in a place like New York, but the Jazz Gallery does just that.

As a musician, music fan and native New Yorker, I can confidently say that The Jazz Gallery is THE best space in NYC for live music. It is the one space in the city that grants artists the complete creative freedom they need to push the music forward. The curating is spectacular and the talent always exceeds expectations. It is one of the few venues that offers extremely high quality music night after night and never disappoints.

I had the opportunity to listen to concerts at The Jazz Gallery two times a week for more than one year and all of them moved me deeply. These were evenings full of new artistic vision. My heart was opened to unusual musical discoveries and a deeper understanding of music.

The Jazz Gallery is a place for those musicians who do not belong to the world of commerce, and who offer to listeners something very unique. To support their new projects and ideas, The Jazz Gallery board commissions the most talented and creative musicians to write music and gives them all possible support during the process of composing.

The entire team at the Jazz Gallery is caring, and thinks creatively about the needs of musicians and guests. Therefore, the Gallery takes care of them as best they can - artists and listeners can always count on hot tea, water, or stimulating conversation about life's vicissitudes : - )

The Jazz Gallery is an open house for all those who love art, new inspiration, and creative music. It's my home !

The Jazz Gallery has nurtured generations of creative musicians, in a scene where support for upcoming artists is very rare and commercial interests are the priority. The "jazz" landscape in NY would not be the same without them. They are a hub for creativity and positiveness.

The Jazz Gallery is an essential music venue and cultural center in NYC. Both emerging and established international artists have found a home in which they can nurture their craft and creativity, thanks to The Jazz Gallery's adventurous programming and eagerness to support new music . Having had access to this space has enabled me to develop projects and introduce my work to new audiences. The first concert I played after moving to NY was at their original location at 290 Hudson St., and I am grateful for having them open their doors to my music and vision, without ever questioning or having me compromise my artistic and esthetic choices. I look forward to more art being developed at this oasis for creativity in NY.
