What makes The Cornelia Street Café a true New York City landmark, an epicurean destination, an artist's café that cultivates and inspires, and one of the few remaining Greenwich Village bastions for creative music, spoken word, art, theatre, cabaret and much more':

-For more than thirty years the Café has provided food for the soul as well as the body, with more than 700 performances a year covering everything from science to songwriting, from Russian poetry to Latin jazz, from theatre to cabaret.

-When the Café opened its doors on July 4th weekend, 1977, it was run by three artists, there was one room with a toaster-oven, a cappuccino machine and a refrigerator display case. Now, the three artists remain, but with two full kitchens and two full bars which serve more than thirty wines by the glass. There are three dining rooms, one with a working fireplace, and an audience and artist-friendly performance space. And in the summer there is one of the Village's loveliest sidewalk cafes.

-Singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega got her start at the Café, as did Eve Ensler's "Vagina Monologues". Senator & presidential candidate Eugene McCarthy & attorney-activist William Kunstler have read their poetry; Dr. Oliver Sacks continues to read his prose. Nobel Laureate Roald Hoffmann presents a monthly Science Series; members of Monty Python & the Royal Shakespeare Company intermittently perform.

-The Cornelia Street Café represents a long and excellent past with the jazz scene in New York City. One that extends from Sheila Jordan all the way to Paul Motian, and yet has plenty of room for up and coming artists who are redefining the modern vocabulary of what jazz improvisation is. It is this unique quality of providing a space which encourages the contemporary and new, while keeping any eye on the past, that truly sets the Café apart.

Michael returns to the Cafe for a special set of music with some very good friends. Tony Scherr and Blake played together in Slow Poke and The Lounge Lizards. Tony's work as a bassist is formidable yet his impact as a songwriter/guitarist is practically legendary. On electric guitar, Scherr consistently manages to raise ones hair. Michael's history with Kresten Osgood isn't as lengthly but is equally prolific including a decades worth of recordings and tours. The Copenhagen based drummer has established himself as a visionary artist, producing albums with Oliver Lake, John Tchcai, Paul Bley, Yusef Laeef and Lonnie Smith. Joining them is the supportive and beloved bassist Rob Jost.
