Throughout the month of September, The Jazz Gallery will be exhibiting the work of photographer Adriana Mateo to help celebrate the release of her new book, Three Generations Under the Lens. A native of Argentina, Mateo has been a fervent documenter of the New York jazz scene since her arrival in 1992. Her book is a varied collection of her work, featuring portraits of jazz masters, as well as kinetic depictions of live performances.

This Tuesday, September 13th, the Gallery will host a special exhibition opening featuring live performances by an all-star group including saxophonist Jimmy Heath (who wrote the book’s forward), saxophonist Mark Gross, pianist Jeb Patton, bassist David Wong, drummer Willie Jones III, and singer Roberta Gambarini. Discounted and autographed copies of the book will be available for sale at this celebration.

Admission is free, but space is limited, so contact to RSVP. If you cannot make it on Tuesday, make sure to check out Ms. Mateo’s wonderful photographs the next time you stop by the Gallery this month.
