One of New York City’s premier live music venues, Smoke Jazz Club has reopened on Broadway and 106th Street, after two years spent reorienting to the pandemic with modified operations including livestreams, sidewalk concerts, and outdoor dining, Smoke has undertaken an impressive expansion and renovation that readies the venerable club for the post-pandemic 21st century.
NEA Jazz Master George Coleman returns to christen the new and improved Smoke with a four-night grand reopening concert celebration, July 21-24. Other artists slated to perform in the near future include Charles McPherson, Vijay Iyer, Mary Stallings, Bill Charlap, Bobby Watson, Nicholas Payton, Renee Rosnes, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Cyrus Chestnut, and Buster Williams.
As before, customers will be able to enjoy top-notch American cuisine and an extensive selection of libations from the bar while listening to these extraordinary performers.
