Perhaps, one of the most iconic jazz clubs in the world, the Blue Note, located in the West Village of Manhattan has hosted one of the most elite who's who lists of musicians since its opening in 1981.
Inspired, by Blue Note Records (est. 1939), the record label that launched the careers of such greats as Miles Davis and John Coltrane, the Blue Note offers an intimate and cozy setting in which to relax, enjoy the dying art of live jazz music and enjoy a good meal and drink.
The house was packed the entire weekend.
It's nice to know that America's classical music has a home.
Perhaps nobody enjoyed Saturday night's sets more than Ohm, who surprised everyone by sitting silent and entranced through two sets while playing the air trombone. I prepared myself to have to run to the green room every few minutes, but my two and a half year old was one of the most well behaved patrons of the evening.
The highlight of the evening for me, was Nicole Henry's performance of Blues in the Night! It was a knockout!!!! I always forget how great this song is until I hear it performed live and I get chills.
Now, I love my husband. I've never truly been "burned" by love. I don't know what it is, but I just love this song!
For those of you not familiar with the piece, I've attached a clip of Nicole Henry singing Blues in the Night. This is not from the Blue Note as recordings are not permitted. You get the idea though.
Dim your lights, grab a glass of wine, and enjoy!
