Publisher Comments:

A "richly anecdotal and wonderful" slim, pocket-size guide now updated to include all the newest hot spots on the Big Apple jazz scene

Jazz Guide: New York City is the only comprehensive guide to jazz in the Big Apple-now revised and expanded to include all the newest hot spots on the scene. Whether uptown or downtown, big bands or subway soloists, its all here. Drop in on the elegant clubs where legendary headliners call the tunes, then hit a hole-in-the wall joint to hear scrappy young bands play all night. Jazz Guide: New York City profiles more than eighty venues where you can experience the best of every kind of jazz-from traditional large ensembles to smoking combos, avant-garde to hard-bop, old-school to DJ-driven, acoustic to electronic-as well as closely related music from around the world, including the drum cultures of the Caribbean, Latin America, and West Africa.

Beyond the clubs, the guide explores music festivals, specialty stores, and jazz lore, including visits to Harlem and 52nd Street in their heydays, the famous bridge where Sonny Rollins moonlighted, and the neighborhood Louis Armstrong called home.

Synopsis:

This is an indispensable guide for jazz aficionados and those seeking entre into New York's big band, bebop, fusion, and funk scenes. Profiled venues include fabled haunts of Harlem; elegant Midtown supper clubs; hip downtown hangouts; and a subterranean Bowery alcove where the spirit of Mingus rumbles on.
