Just last summer, Jazz Forum Arts opened the Jazz Forum, Westchester’s only dedicated Jazz club, presenting world-renowned Jazz artists on Fridays and Saturdays and Brazilian and Jazz groups on Sundays. The club has presented Roy Hargrove, John Pizzarelli and celebrated pianists including Bill Charlap, Monty Alexander and Barry Harris in an intimate listening room.
Already the alternative to NYC clubs, performing artists have called the Jazz Forum “the best club in the world” moved by its ambiance, audience and “vibe”. The artists have consistently said that the only missing element is a grand piano worthy of the club’s musical excellence.
The Jazz Forum is a program of Jazz Forum Arts, a 33-year-old non-profit arts presenting organization. Free summer outdoor concerts and affordably-priced club shows fulfill the mission: presenting top-quality events to the public at little or no cost while enhancing the appreciation of Jazz, America’s preeminent indigenous musical art form.
