Review for The Jazz Gallery, New York, NY, USA
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.
