Blue Note New York

The Blue Note jazz club is like a precocious kid who has skipped a few grades and graduated early: it's younger than its achievements would have you believe.

Or, to put it in terms of the trade, compared to some of the elder statesmen of New York City jazz clubs, the Blue Note is a 23-year-old young lion. Since opening its doors on September 25, 1981 (modestly, billing Turk Mauro & Friends), the Blue Note has grown into nothing less than a jazz institution in the city, so that now it's hard to imagine West 3rd Street without this vibrant hub of improvised music.

The Blue Note regularly attracts the most boldface names in jazz and its history boasts many of the bigwigs as well: Dizzy Gillespie, Sarah Vaughan, Tito Puente, Ray Charles, Milt Jackson, Oscar Peterson, Chick Corea and Keith Jarrett, for starters.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
