“Celebrate music by being a part of the concert series that ‘Brooklyn Jazz Wide Open’ provides for the community at large!!! We need each other to carry on… Sounds & Feelings” – jazz legend Joe Lovano

“Brooklyn Jazz Wide Open is not just another concert series. One of the elements that makes it special-for both the audience and the musicians-is that artists are invited to discuss their process and answer questions as they arise. This creates a natural, relaxed atmosphere in which the barriers between audience and performers are removed and true understanding and appreciation can take place.” – Eileen Willis, Metropolitan Museum of Art
