Farewell to the Jazz Standard

Thanks to Emily Olcott for this lovely piece about the Jazz Standard, which closed for good yesterday. So many wonderful insider details!

Thanks to owner Danny Meyer for giving NYC such a classy club. Seth Abramson (also a musician and all-around good egg) did a great job booking the room for at least two decades. Shout out to my friend Martin Porter, who was part of that team during the era I was playing there the most.

A big loss…
