Slowly but surely, jazz seems to be worth more these days than a few years
ago. At least in NYC. Barbone Street too, has also raised our prices for the
second year in a row here in the Philadelphia area. Thank you Wynton
Marsalis and Ken Burns for increasing the awareness of Jazz among the "jazz
oblivious" general public.
Note the following audience prices at clubs in NYC, where even the old guys
are drawing a crowd. (Barbieri, Brookmeyer, Heath & Hall):
