Jazz Standard is a jazz club located at 116 East 27th Street in the Rose Hill neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. It frequently hosts well-known bands and musicians. The club is owned by restaurateur Danny Meyer and is located in the basement of one of his Blue Smoke restaurants.

The Mingus Big Band, the Mingus Orchestra, and Mingus Dynasty rotate every Monday night as the club's de facto house bands. The former won the 2011 Grammy Award for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album for their album Mingus Big Band Live at Jazz Standard. The Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra has played a week-long gig at the club every Thanksgiving since 2005.[2]

The magazine New York lists the club as a ″top 5 jazz joint″.[3] The New York City Jazz Record named Jazz Standard the "venue of the year" 2017.

History[edit]

When the club opened in the fall of 1997 the upstairs restaurant was called "Standard".[1]
