Top Reasons on Why Jazz is at its Best in New York City

New York City is considered the jazz capital of the world because jazz legends made a name for themselves in this City.  


Some notable musicians who made a name in the music industry include Louie Armstrong, Ella Fritzgerald, Count Basie and Lena Horne.  

So when in New York City, check out some of the great places to visit to satisfy your jazz cravings.

* Village Vanguard

Located at the 7th Ave. South and 11th Street, Village Vanguard is the most popular jazz destination in NYC.  As CBS New York cited, “The club is host to top-shelf straight ahead, swing based toonage.”  

* Jazz Standard

A predominant bar in the New York jazz scene is Jazz Standard, which offers a “not-too-touristy” atmosphere for travellers who hate crowds.  It is also notable for serving the best food in all of the jazz destinations in the City.

* Smalls

Smalls is known to be an after-hours club, and Jazz was destined to be played here.  As the name implies, it is located in a small bar that you really need to be early to get a good seat.

Without a doubt, since the 1940’s up to now, New York is still considered the “centre of the jazz universe”.
