NYC – Still the Jazz Capital (DownBeat, Feb. 2019)

Smalls/Mezzrow impresario and pianist Spike Wilner.

For the lead story on New York City in @DownbeatMag’s 25 Greatest Jazz Cities package (Feb. 2019), I spoke with musicians who run jazz clubs, like Spike Wilner and Matt Garrison (Shapeshifter Lab); other musicians who live here (Anat Cohen, Kurt Elling); and jazz label execs Don Was (Blue Note), Barney Fields (HighNote/Savant), Seth Rosner and Yulun Wang (Pi).  Read it here.
