The Jazz Gallery

New York, NY               

The Jazz Gallery is America’s premier performance venue for artists who challenge convention, take creative risks, and lead their field as performers, composers, and thinkers. Through residencies, workshops, and exhibitions, we provide a platform for emerging artists to discover their voices and a home for established musicians to experiment and grow. At the Gallery, artists and audiences come together to explore new ideas and celebrate jazz as a dynamic art form reflecting our ever-changing world.
