The Blue Note Jazz Club opened in 1981 and has been one of the best jazz clubs in the world ever since. It’s a gathering place where listeners can enjoy the best American music. The club promotes innovation and progression while preserving the history and traditions of jazz. Clubs like Blue Note have been an integral part of New York’s entertainment for years, and the coronavirus pandemic has led them to shut down for months. The recent reopening of the clubs has been incredibly exciting for artists and jazz fans across the state.
Blue Note is celebrating the grand reopening of New York jazz clubs by presenting the Blue Note Jazz Festival which runs throughout the summer. Many emerging artists from jazz, soul, hip-hop, R&B and funk will be featured. The energy within the walls of Blue Note this summer will remind attendees of the gaping hole that was left this year when jazz clubs were forced to close. Electrical performance will be something you surely don’t want to miss out on.
