Paris’ New Morning is the kind of club that everyone would like to live next to. An informal ambient, meeting point for jazz and high-quality music fans. The club has been included in Downbeat Magazine’s ‘150 Great Jazz Venues’… très cool!
Only the finest jazz venues are part of Downbeat’s Great Jazz Venues list. Paris‘ New Morning is part of the international élite of jazz. A Great and well-equipped stage, a stunning light and acoustic system, a dancefloor and an excellent schedule (jazz is not the only genre, there are also salsa and funk nights). Every week is a new adventure at New Morning, with up and comers and well-known veterans of both the French and International jazz scene.
Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers – whose line-up included the Marsalis Brothers – held the opening concert in the Spring of ’81. Since then, the club has hosted a bunch of legendary musicians: Chet Baker, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon and McCoy Tyner, only to name a few.
New Morning is the quintessential jazz venue, where people are more focused on listening to live performances, rather than sitting in a super-luxury location. Do get this wrong, though. The club has an excellent customer service, a very well-furnished environment and a philosophy that can definitely be called the “jazz way of living” one . Jazz is not the only hosted genre, in fact is not a rarity for the club to host a salsa or groovin’ funky night.
With concerts almost every night of the week, New Morning is definitely a place worth visiting if you are in Paris. There are lot of jazz venues, but only a few have the character of this one. Students, long-time jazz aficionados, new- comers…the New Morning welcome everyone with a passion for music!
