Jazz on the Tube’s headquarters Tivoli, New York is not exactly the jazz capital of the world, but some of our neighbors may surprise you.

Sonny Rollins lived just “up the street” in Germantown for a bunch of decades, only three minutes away by car. (Now he lives across the river in Woodstock.)

Also across the river in Woodstock, Jack DeJohnette and Pat Metheny.

And that’s just a few of the big name cats.

A lot of musicians live in the Hudson Valley/Catskill region of New York.


1. It’s only about two hours from New York City

2. It’s beautiful: rivers, mountains, lakes, forests, meadows, farms

3. Until the last few years, it used to be affordable (still is by New York City standards.)

Our best club: The Falcon down in Marlboro, NY. One of the best music clubs in the world and it hosts world class jazz regularly.


Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield, Joe Lovano, and Larry Grenadier performing a benefit for a local food bank at Falcon.
