Jazz at Joe’s Pub: A New Collaboration

On Monday May 7, The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music will host the first concert in a new collaboration with the world-renowned downtown performance venue, Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater.

Consistent with at Joe’s Pub’s reputation as a premier showcase for up-and-coming musicians and emerging artists from a variety of disciplines, each semester the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music will be presenting performances by selected student ensembles, providing its talented young musicians with real-world professional experience playing in one of New York’s finest music rooms.

The first event will feature a double-header of two separate performances led by faculty members Michael Wolff and Bobby Sanabria:

  • 7:00 p.m. The Rhythm & Blues Revue: Michael Wolff, jazz pianist, composer, producer, actor, and New School Jazz faculty member, will lead a big band performance of timeless music by Sly Stone, Raphael Saadiq, D’Angelo, Frankie Beverly & MAZE, James Brown and more.
  • 9:30 p.m. The New School Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra: Bobby Sanabria, drummer, percussionist, composer, bandleader, and New School Jazz faculty member, will lead a performance of Latin Jazz of the East Harlem tradition, which was created by the Cuban maestro Mario Bauz√°, and features blazing brass and driving percussion.

Admission for each show is $15, and $12 for students with code JPTIXB3. Tickets can be purchased in person at The Public Theater Box Office, 425 Lafayette Street from 1:00-6:00 p.m., or online at or by calling 212.539.8778.*
