Forum Topic: Where to catch some jazz in NYC Sept. 19 - 23?

I'm going to be in New York City from Sept 19 thru 23, tagging along with my wife who is traveling for work. I'd love to catch some live jazz while I'm there.

Any VW members gigging in NYC in that timeframe? Barring that, does anyone have any recommendations in terms of clubs that I might hit and catch a good set? Living in little Sheboygan, Wisconsin I don't often have the opportunity to hear live jazz music so I want to make the most of my time out in the real world.

Hey everybody,

I've not met a lot of you, but this may be a chance for those in/near Philly. My "Combo" from the US Naval Academy Band is playing Rose Tree Park (near Media PA) on Wednesday July 1st at 730pm. I hope some of you can make it. Please come up and say hello if you're there.
