Revealing much more than simply where to go and what to do in New York, Jazz Guide NYC provides detailed and valuable information about the city's current jazz ecology, its artists and events.

Steve Dollar's up-to-the-minute reflections will vividly reveal New York and its jazz scene to readers in other parts of the world, who may never see the city in real life, but will also be of interest to lifelong New Yorkers. Taking the reader on a tour of jazz in the city, Dollar writes about the musicians, past and present, who have done so much to shape the music.

As a dedicated jazz professional himself, Dollar has discussed the state of jazz with many people, and his candid commentaries flow in conversational style. Along with information about clubs, we learn about festivals, institutions, jazz radio stations, museums and more.

Dollar has left nothing out, and the book includes discussions on a range of legacy artists like Duke Ellington, Rahsaan Roland Kirk and Louis Armstrong to more contemporary figures such as trumpeter Dave Douglas, pianist Eric Reed, guitarist Bill Frisell and saxophonist Donny McCaslin. Dollar is a writer who is in touch with current trends and knows what time it is.
