Cornelia-Citation-JDGCornelia-Street-Café-Daylight-JDGCornelia name and address“a range of activities so varied, unusual, and enthralling that the sheer scope of what goes on within those walls could unsettle a sound mind.” – Bob Harrington, Nightlife Magazine

“The Cafe represents a long and excellent past with the jazz scene in New York City. One that extends from Sheila Jordan all the way through Paul Motian and yet has plenty of room for up and coming artists who are redefining the modern vocabulary of what jazz improvisation is. It is this unique quality of providing a space which encourages the contemporary and new while keeping any eye on the past that truly sets the cafe apart.” – Tom Chang, Music Curator

NOUVELLES DU CAFE:
The Cafe, which opened almost 38 years ago on July 4, 1977, continues 2015 by presenting the most revered musicians on the creative/improvised music scene. Check out the wonderful FEATURE on the Cafe and our Minister of Culture and Wine Czar, Robin Hirsch Downtown Express

ALL THREE NIGHTS TO BE RECORDED FOR THE BAND’S NEXT ALBUM ON CUNEIFORM RECORDS

The Claudia Quintet has walked a unique path in contemporary jazz since their founding in the late 1990s. Unlike most jazz ensembles where the particular musicians may come and go, drummer, composer and leader John Hollenbeck always wanted Claudia to be a ‘band’ with a sound not only determined by the compositions and the instrumentation, but with the actual players who perform the music. This concept is why Claudia has had an immediately identifiable sound since its inception. In that sound, the exceptional artistry and individuality of each musician is skillfully revealed throughout Hollenbeck’s original compositions.
