Jazz Guide: New York City is the only comprehensive guide to jazz in the Big Appleâ??now revised and expanded to include all the newest hot spots on the scene. Whether uptown or downtown, big bands or subway soloists, itâ??s all here. Drop in on the elegant clubs where legendary headliners call the tunes, then hit a hole-in-the wall joint to hear scrappy young bands play all night. Jazz Guide: New York City profiles more than eighty venues where you can experience the best of every kind of jazzâ??from traditional large ensembles to smoking combos, avant-garde to hard-bop, old-school to DJ-driven, acoustic to electronicâ??as well as closely related music from around the world, including the drum cultures of the Caribbean, Latin America, and West Africa.
Beyond the clubs, the guide explores music festivals, specialty stores, and jazz lore, including visits to Harlem and 52nd Street in their heydays, the famous bridge where Sonny Rollins moonlighted, and the neighborhood Louis Armstrong called home.
