Aficionados affectionately refer to it as ‘the 6’. Music students undergo the initiation of going to hear their tutors burn there, and then trek home bleary eyed on the night bus. Rock stars like hanging their pictures on the wall. Diners love the chocolate pud and everyone digs the mural.
The 606 Club in Chelsea is a proper archetypal jazz club. You even have to ring a buzzer at the top of a flight of steps and enter through a wire gate before heading down to this basement joint. All very New Yoyk.
On September 18th, NYJO’s own Nonet led by tenor star Tom Stone will appear at the club on a night curated by 606 patron, former Olympian, NYJO vice president, member of the House of Lords, and jazz fan Seb Coe.
The 9 piece will play a set of cool school original arrangements of jazz classics, standards and tunes from legendary albums such as Miles Davis’s 1964 Concert.
