@TheJazzGallery is a great concept, as a rehearsal space for young bands, as a place for creation in general. Such initiatives must flourish beyond NYC. Young artists need independence to create and Jazz Gallery as a not-for-profit institution can greatly support them!
There is something to learn from The Jazz Gallery project for people supporting young entrepreneurs: When not-for-profit incubation initiatives for startups will become mainstream?
