Located in Midtown Manhattan, the Iridium Jazz Club is a nice place to hear different kinds of jazz in a nice, mild setting. Despite its’ location in chaotic Midtown West, once you enter the club, the hustle and bustle of New York City slowly starts to dissipate with the sound of a few notes. On Monday nights, the creator of the electric guitar Les Paul plays with his trio. Many celebrities and well-known people frequent his performances, which are always electrifying for a man in his nineties. Typically the Iridium will host weeklong engagements by straight ahead jazz performers and sometimes with fusion groups. Some of the buzz has left Iridium since the Mingus Big Band left to go to the Jazz Standard for their weeklies, which were held on Tuesday nights, but the club has managed to regroup and offer up new and refreshing music. Ticket prices for the average show can start at $20 while other shows start at $50. One good thing about Iridium is they do offer a student discount of 50% with valid school identification for many of their shows.
