‘The Jazz Gallery’s Home Run Benefit Concert’


Over the last two decades, this downtown space has made a name or itself as both one of the city’s key labs for improvisers and a cozy spot to watch the ideas of young bandleaders unfold. The rub: Re-zoning has forced them to find a new location, and raising rents has required them to acquire some new loot to pay for it. Tonight’s intergenerational fundraiser program finds a spot for everyone from Henry Threadgill and Kenny Barron to Dafnis Prieto and Vijay Iyer. Need a portrait of jazz’s current scope? This will do fine.
