Since the December 2020 closure of Jazz Standard’s doors on East 27th Street, there has been a heart-breaking vacancy in Manhattan’s jazz community. Jazz Standard’s team hopes that this new series will help fill that void with the high-quality production, stellar musical experience, and warm hospitality that it has been applauded for almost two decades. “For the past few months, we have been overwhelmed and humbled by the outpouring of love and support from both the jazz community and our patrons,” says Seth Abramson, Artistic Director, Jazz Standard. “We are dedicated to continuing the conversation with them through this streaming format and hopefully connecting with more members of our international audience.”
All shows were filmed in advance at the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) in South Orange, New Jersey, and produced and curated by Jazz Standard’s Artistic Director Seth Abramson.
