"Celebrate music by being a part of the concert series that 'Brooklyn Jazz Wide Open' provides for the community at large!!! We need each other to carry on... Sounds & Feelings"  - jazz legend Joe Lovano

"Brooklyn Jazz Wide Open is not just another concert series. One of the elements that makes it special-for both the audience and the musicians-is that artists are invited to discuss their process and answer questions as they arise. This creates a natural, relaxed atmosphere in which the barriers between audience and performers are removed and true understanding and appreciation can take place." - Eileen Willis, Metropolitan Museum of Art
 
This event is made possible in part with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and by JPMorgan-Chase, all administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council, Inc. (BAC) as well as funding from Meet the Composer.
