Bleecker is rarely so electric as during NYC Winter Jazzfest, an elegantly curated festival of fine experimental jazz that encompasses the best venues in the West Village radius: (le) poisson rouge, Kennys Castaways and Zinc Bar on Friday, and additionally Sullivan Hall and the Bitter End on Saturday. This sixth annual forums lineup spans New York, South Africa, France, and more; Mary Halvorson, Bobby Prevites New Bump Quartet, Ibrahim Maalouf, Occidental Brothers Dance Band International, and Rudresh Mahanthappas Indo-Pak Coalition are just a few of the dizzyingly rad options.
