Fans’ Decision Jazz Awards night, hosted by singer Antoinette Montague, has the Danny Mixon trio as house band. NEA Jazz master, Chairman – Newport Festivals Foundation, Inc. and Founder of the Newport Jazz Festival George Wein and Lorraine Gordon, co-founder and owner of the Village Vanguard will receive special honors. Hot House, the jazz magazine, keeps thing rollings and has done the polling and extolling of the virtues of the artists and their music. Welcoming the guests and performers, the publication’s editor Gwen Kelly will open the program. Metropolitan Room, which just closed its doors while waiting to set up shop at its new location, open, had welcomed the ceremonies on its stage in past years and now their partner club, The Triad, plays host to the Monday, October 9 event which begins at 7 PM. The Triad is located at 158 West 72nd Street, between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues, New York City. The previous awards events were sold out, so reservation is strongly recommended. General admission and VIP packages are available.
The oldest jazz magazine in New York, Hot House is the only periodical in the New York metro area devoted solely to previews of upcoming jazz events. Since 1982, it has offered insight and enthusiasm to both longtime jazz fans and newcomers to the scene, inform readers, help promote events and bring an audience to the performances. Today, Hot House is not only in print but also online and on apps.
