Regarding the Jazz scene in New York City, one of the Blue Note's managers matter-of-factly told us: "This is it." Indeed, the Blue Note is arguably the world’s most popular jazz club. Although the club only opened their doors in the early 80’s, it has the feel of a longtime veteran in the New York Jazz scene. Once you get over the commercial feel of the joint, including its gold-plaque embedded tables, mediocre meals named after jazz songs, and overpriced gift shop, the Blue Note is truly among the best of its kind. Expect to see world-renowned talent on any given day except for Mondays, which is reserved for exceptional local talent. Show times are 9:00 and 11:30 during the week and additional Sunday matinees at 1:00 PM and 3:30 PM. Check the schedule link for show details.
Although considered one of the top venues in the world for presenting Jazz, the Blue Note also feature all the biggest names in Blues, Latin, Brazilian, Fusion, R&B, Soul, Contemporary, Big Band and Popular music.
