This is the granddaddy long legs of downtown jazz venues - featuring a genre bending blend of envelope pushing and utterly deserving acts on several intimate stages throughout the deceptively vast complex. There are too many shows to mention so just go to their web site calendar or call them directly to attain schedule and ticket information. -Gordon Polatnick, Big Apple Jazz Tour
