A look inside The Jazz Gallery

The Star Initiative

The Star Initiative

We’re pleased to announce that The Jazz Gallery is now a participant of WNYC and WQXR’s Salute The ARts (STAR) Initiative:

“a free program that profiles 36 small cultural non-profit organizations in the New York Metropolitan area over a 12-month period, through on-air promotional announcements and free website support.”

Keep your ears open through August 27th for mentions of The Jazz Gallery on WNYC 93.9 FM/AM 820 and WQXR 105.9 FM, and be sure to check out the events pages at WNYC and WQXR.

Also, if you already regularly listen to WNYC, you’ve probably noticed the hourly station identification music, a repeating figure played on the vibraphone. What you might not have known is that this song, entitled “Clear the Rain,” was composed and performed by Chris Dingman, a Gallery alumnus who’s been checking out shows here since 2002 as well as performing on our stage since 2004. Chris has appeared here both with his own groups and as a sideman; most recently, he was back in the fall with the Steve Lehman Octet.
