GothamJazz provides up-to-date, accurate, and comprehensive information for listeners in search of jazz listings. Through accessible presentation and informed research, GothamJazz.com sheds light on the many lesser-known performers and venues that are often overlooked by other publications.
GothamJazz does not aim to replace current publications that deal with all scopes of the jazz world but instead, will focus on live music and the performer by publishing up-to-date, comprehensive information on the constantly evolving New York Jazz scene. GothamJazz recognizes that jazz, especially jazz in New York, is a diverse and dynamic art form whose very essence necessitates the listener to remain current and connected to its developments.
Currently, listeners in search of jazz need to scan several publications and individual websites to glean a comprehensive idea of the week's shows. GothamJazz will provide listings in a concise and clear manner allowing listeners to more quickly access the information they desire. GothamJazz will also provide a forum for listeners to comment and rate performers and clubs. Utilizing the vast information of the jazz community, we hope GothamJazz will bring attention to lesser known venues and players.
Our ultimate goal is to free up jazz information, to make finding shows more accessible, and in the end, broaden the listening base by bringing more listeners to the many venues across the boroughs.
