One of hippest jazz clubs in New York City would have to be “Smalls”.
Located in the heart of Greenwich Village, this famous club has a jam session Twice a day, afternoon and late nights. There’s usually three bands per night. The local musicians hangout here after their gigs including big names like Roy Hargrove, Chris Potter, Joel Frahm, Tivon Pennicot, The list goes on………
The staff are friendly, musicians are welcomed and always treated to discounted entry or free entry.
In the wee small hours, the resident cat tends to roam around like it owns the place.
Some of the best gigs I’ve heard have been done at the basement club.
