The Iridium Jazz Club
The Iridium Jazz Club
New York's Best Jazz Club - NY Magazine
Improvements to the club include a new state of the art Meyer Sound System conceived by no less an authority than the legendary guitarist Les Paul, Acoustics, Lighting, Design and a Recording Studio. What hasn't changed is Iridium's stellar roster of jazz artists, including Les Paul who plays every Monday, along with our Wine Spectator award winning wine list and upscale cuisine.
Unlike other jazz clubs that force you to endure cramped tables, indifferent service and typical club food, The Iridium Jazz Club excels not only by presenting New York's hottest jazz acts, but also with excellent cuisine, outstanding service, and one of the world's most intimate and visually exciting club, designed by noted designer, Larry Bogdanow and Associates. Perhaps this is why New York Magazine named us New York's Best Jazz Club and The New York Times called us "one of New York's major jazz clubs."
Iridium Jazz Club started with a mission in December 1994; present local artists in an attractive setting. New York's jazz scene is littered with the remains of countless jazz clubs, who shot up quickly, only to close soon after. The Iridium took an unplanned evolutionary approach, utilizing local artists culled from homemade tapes. Soon, Iridium was "discovered" and was fortunate to begin operations in the midst of a jazz revival, the success of jazz at Lincoln Center, and an affluent West Side looking to experience a real NY Jazz Club. The club has undergone several renovations to keep up with its increasing popularity. There have been many major releases recorded live at Iridium from such artists as Jacky Terrasson, Charlie Haden, Kenny Barron, Benny Carter, The Jazz Messengers, Sweets Edison, and Clark Terry.
A key part of the renovation was creating a professional sound system. "We have a state-of-the-art Meyer sound system, as well as a Steinway piano and a recording studio. People who really want to hear music like the space because the focus here is on the music."
Iridium also prides itself on its ambience. The club's underground location, discreet lighting, and two-tiered seating create a cozy, even romantic atmosphere. The club is also renowned for its quality service and food, including a Sunday jazz brunch that features singer and pianist Bob Dorough.
Iridium is perhaps most famous for its relationship with guitar legend Les Paul, who has been performing Monday nights at Iridium since April 1995. "I noticed that Les wasn't playing at Fat Tuesdays anymore," Sturm said, "so I called up a close friend and he hooked us up. Les showed up unannounced one night wearing blue jeans; he was very straightforward with no airs, and we hit it off. Les is meat and potatoes: people come from all over the world to see him, and he has time for everyone. He's the hippest 87-year-old that you're ever going to see."
