If in the ancient world all roads led to Rome, then for about 35 years of the 20th Century for those seeking a unique cultural experience all roads led to Art D'Lugoff's The Village Gate. The legendary club at the corner of Bleecker and Thompson Streets in Greenwich Village was a powerful magnet for those wanting to sample the music of the day as well as sounds ahead of the times. From 1958 to 1993 they came to drink up the atmosphere and the artistic scene and, well...just drink, meet up, have fun.

One of the programming highlights of that golden era was “Salsa Meets Jazz,” a Monday night staple that will be revived in a show featuring Poncho Sanchez at a new venue on the same site as a tribute to D'Lugoff's genius and his Gate as part of this month's JVC Jazz Festival. Other JVC shows featuring Charlie Haden's Quartet West, Bill Frisell's trio, the Swedish group E.S.T. with New York's Aetherial Bace and Soul Live with Joshua Redman will be held at the new nightspot, called Le Poisson Rouge.
