The Little Bookroom Publishing Company has released the 2nd edition of Steve Dollar’s New York City jazz handbook, Jazz Guide: NYC, which profiles a wide range of jazz venues, from basement stops to elegant clubs, and includes directions on where to find any and every subgenre of jazz, from big band to avant-garde. Also included are profiles of festivals, music stores, and other tidbits of information that will interest the jazz enthusiast. In addition to venues and events, the guide spotlights some of the memorable places in jazz history, such as the bridge where Sonny Rollins worked and Louis Armstrong’s former neighborhood.
Author and New York resident Steve Dollar writes about pop culture for Newsday, the New York Sun, Time Out Chicago, Stereophile and Print, and has had articles published in GQ, the Wall Street Journal and the Oxford American.
Jazz Guide: NYC will be available in February 2007, for the publisher’s cost of $15.95.Originally Published
