Hot Club: Jazz Listening Session
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
What is a Hot Club? Starting in the 1930's, "Hot Clubs" were a sort of "Book Club" for jazz listening - fans would get together to play records for each other. Today, the Neo Hot Club movement is about hearing classic and rare jazz records on their original 78RPM format, which offers the best sound possible. A community of jazz lovers is growing around these "Neo Hot Clubs," keeping alive the love of old recordings and swinging hot jazz. This session is led by esteemed jazz researcher and historian Ben Young.
Venue: Flushing Town Hall
137-35 Northern Blvd
