05/??/08 Jazz @ Lincoln Center, Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, New York, NY

The free music season in NYC seems to start earlier every year. On this sunny day in May, I convinced my friend Sylvia to drive us into Manhattan for some early afternoon jazz at the new jazz cafe in Columbus Center.

Jazz @ Lincoln Center had opened up recently and spread various performance and educational spaces throughout the building, curated by Wynton Marsalis. Nearly every performance space, Dizzy's included, features a plate glass windows overlooking the hustle and bustle of Columbus Circle as a backdrop.

After the show, we explored the other performance spaces, including the small yet stunning Allen Room and the larger and equally impressive Rose Theatre where we were privy to an orchestra's rehearsal.

Later, we perused the paintings and sculptures that populate the mall.
