This Wonderful World: Jazz in New York

1:32 pm  |  17.04.2022

The range of jazz clubs in New York is very large. This is partly because jazz is the favorite music of many New Yorkers.


In any case, New York is the best contender for fame as the “Capital of the World”. There is live music in over 40 New York jazz clubs every day! This even leads to the fact that there are fans of this genre of music who even move to Greenwich Village or SoHo just because of the music.

Incidentally, the most legendary jazz clubs are all close together, making it easy to get from one gig to the next on foot without any problems. Greats like “Joe Henderson” and “Oscar Peterson” performed in New York jazz clubs, as did Woody Allen.

Other special locations are the “Birdland” (2745 Broadway/West 48th Street/8th Avenue), where the musicians of the orchestras of the Broadway performances warm up every Friday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m Broadway shows, and the legendary “Blue Note” (131 W 3rd Street) with an excellent atmosphere, albeit at relatively high prices.

Incidentally, “jazz tours” are also offered there for expensive money. Upon request, I offer the jazz lovers of the NYC Guide to put together an individual program!

Manhattan School of Music

In the warmer months, look through the music programs in the parks – for example, Central Park Summerstage, Hudson River Festival, Lincoln Center goes out of the doors, etc. The first set always plays there. When munching on the hamburger you open your ears a little.
