Tucked away on 27th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues the Jazz Standard has in a little over a decade, become a world class venue for live jazz, attracting some of the worlds best performers. This image on November 27th, 2017 was taken moments before stepping inside to see Maria Schneider and her amazing ensemble.

Looking out on Third Avenue on a wet, hot, humid July night from inside a taxi between the East Village and Grand Central.
