If you love jazz, New York City is the place you want to be from January 7th through the 11th. (Frankly, even if you loathe jazz, you want to be with us, just because you love us, right?)

For the tenth year in a row, the Winter Jazz Fest will help be-bop and big band buffs ease into the new year with phenomenal sounds. Over a hundred artists will perform at multiple venues on the main dates: 1/10 and 1/11. $35 gets you a one-day pass and $55 will buy you two days of music. $95 will get you access to the whole shebang from the 7th on (including Blue Note Records anniversary concerts on the 8th and 9th).

Venues are mostly local to Washington Square: Le Poisson Rouge, Judson Church, NYU Lounge, Zinc Bar, Bitter End, Subculture and Bowery Electric. So buy a day pass, wander through Greenwich Village and get a little taste of everything.

Artists include Jason Moran, the (bassist) Chris Morrissey Quartet, the Jazz Passengers, the Antoine Rony Trio (featuring Kojo), NEXT Collective and Don Byron’s Six Musician Group. Click here for the full lineup, and read more about the festival on their Facebook page.

I’ve got a hundred dollars smoking in my billfold
I know I ought to save it but it’s burning a whole
Right through my pocket and into my skin
Come Monday morning I’ll be broke again

It’s finally Friday I’m free again
I got my motor running for a wild weekend
It’s finally Friday I’m out of control
Forget the working blues and let the good times roll

I got a little sugar baby down the road
She is sitting on ready and rocking on go
We’ll dance up a storm and later on tonight
We’ll be working on doing all the wrong things right

It’s finally Friday I’m free again
I got my motor running for a wild weekend
It’s finally Friday I’m out of control
Forget the working blues and let the good times roll

Monday I’ll be hurting with my head in a vise
Tuesday I’ll be wandering if I’ll ever survive
Wednesday and Thursday I’ll be slowly tuning in
Friday I’ll be reving up my motor again

It’s finally Friday I’m free again
I got my motor running for a wild weekend
It’s finally Friday I’m out of control
Forget the working blues and let the good times roll

Finally cialis Friday
I got my motor running for a wild weekend
