Music Near Madison Square Park: Amber Martin, Fred Hersch
While, on the weekends, we often highlight the great music near Madison Square Park, there is a lot going on during the week as well! This week, Jazz Standard and Ace Hotel are hosting some interesting acts that should not be missed.
Amber Martin will perform in the Ace Hotel Lobby Bar every wednesday this month. Originally from Texas, this Lower East Side resident brings her unique brand of comedy and music to the NoMad neighborhood. The Village Voice calls her “flat-out hilarious” and TimeOut New York says she is a “a chameleonic performer with a mind-blowing voice.” The show is at 8pm and is free and open to all ages.
Nightly through sunday, Fred Hersch will present his Fred Hersch Duo Invitation Series. The jazz pianist will link up for performance with musicians ranging from Donny McCaslin (wednesday), Greg Osby (thursday), Esperanza Spalding & Richie Barshay (friday / saturday) and Lionel Loueke (sunday). This is a great opportunity to catch some amazing jazz music near Madison Square Park!
