SOMETHING NU, SOMETHING BLU
The West Village might be synonymous with jazz, but any post-Beat
Generation hipster can tell you the East Village is also where it’s
at. Over on Avenue C, Nublu, that little music venue that could, has
stayed strong for some nine years and now even spearheads its own
music fest. Back for its third year, the Nublu Jazz Festival kicked
off last Wednesday and runs through December 18 with shows at Nublu’s
two spaces and Joe’s Pub. Speaking about the event, owner/curator
Ilhan Ersahin says, “Nublu is a continuation of jazz culture, it has
the spirit of jazz with a sound that is relevant today.” Tonight catch
Aya with Jonathan Maron and Itaal Shur, and the Nuble Orchestra
conducted by Butch Morris, among others.
