The Kitano Hotel Lounge is one of the premier jazz venues in New York. Host to hundreds of top jazz musicians from the US and worldwide, their Friday and Saturday night shows have a $25 cover charge (and a $15 food/drink minimum). But on Wednesday and Thursday nights the $25 cover charge is WAIVED! (Food/drink minimum still applies.) On Thursday, April 15th we are going to see renowned jazz guitarist Bill Wurtzel and his jazz quartet play at the Kitano. His band happens to include vocalist Yvette Glover (Savion Glover's mother, and a highly-regarded singer in her own right). Bill Wurtzel Bill Wurtzel's web site: http://www.billwurtze... About The Venue: The Kitano Hotel is an elegant Japanese luxury hotel. Stunningly beautiful, it has an upscale Jazz Lounge which is an extension of its overall elegance. Normally you could not see jazz for free in a venue so beautiful and renowned. I think the hotel must subsidize the lounge as an amenity for its guests. But you don't have to be a hotel guest to see great jazz in this beautiful lounge, it is open to the public as well. Jazz performances are free on Thursday nights, but you must order at least $15 worth of food and/or drinks.
Our Live Music Meetup will be meeting in the Kitano Hotel Lounge at 7:30pm for the 8:00pm performance of the Bill Wurtzel Jazz Quartet.
