We really want a good crowd at this one. I am trying to help Big Apple to become a “destination" for jazz lovers. What's not to like?:

Big Apple is a delightful coffee-house atmosphere with burgers, fish, soft drinks and desserts available, as well as jazz CDs and books and other gifts--you can bring your own wine ($3 corking fee per bottle)--COME TO THIS GIG!!!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
