If you’re a jazz fan you should know about the cool Jazz Corner site, with links to jazz-related sites, a busy bulletin board, reviews, profiles and news.

Of particular interest is an incredible jam to be held on Saturday night, Jan 24th at the Iridium, 1650 Broadway at 51st St. in NYC:

    YOU MUST MAKE RESERVATIONS by calling 212 582-2121.

    There will also be door prizes of limited edition prints from jazz photographer Lee Tanner. We will also be presenting a check to Wendy Oxenhorn from the Jazz Foundation of America’s Jazz Musicians Emergency Fund and hopefully coax her to play a little mouth harp.

    Incidentally, the Iridium is a great jazz club. Well worth checking out, no matter when you’re in town. But Monday nights are especially fun.
