Sound It Out




Established in 1905, Greenwich House Music has long been a focal point of the downtown arts scene, with pivotal figures from Henry Cowell, Edgar Varèse and John Cage to Meredith Monk, Joan La Barbara and Morton Subotnick linked with the institution. Singer-songwriter Steve Earle and guitarist Jorma Kaukonen have performed at Greenwich House, and jazz has a history there, too: Varèse and composer Earle Brown, collaborating with saxophonist-producer Teo Macero, hosted an improvisation session in 1957 with a group that included such players as Art Farmer and Charles Mingus. More recently, the Jazz Composers Collective held important concerts at Greenwich House in the 1990s. 

Sound It Out, founded by series curator Bradley Bambarger in June 2012, aims to continue this tradition by hosting musicians from jazz and other venturesome genres, further binding Greenwich House Music with progressive scenes across New York City. 

GHMS was named one of the five best jazz venues in New York City for 2013!
