"The Jazz Loft in Stony Brook NY is one of the hippest concert Venues and Jazz Museums in the NY area. My quintet “Sound Prints” which I co-lead with Dave Douglas just played two wonderful concerts for the Jazz Loft and were very pleasantly surprised to find such a unique forum for our music. Tom Manuel, president and founder, has a deep passion for what he’s doing to present Jazz in this amazing setting full of treasures of the masters. After your first visit you will be a regular. I look forward to my next visit."    -Joe Lovano 

The Jazz Loft is an extraordinary venue and collection of jazz ephemera! That, and a warm community of listeners and supporters, make the Jazz Loft a hidden gem right in Stony Brook, NY on the North Shore. Amazing. We had an inspiring time!”   -Dave Douglas

"The Jazz Loft has quickly grown to be one of my favorite jazz clubs to perform at. It's about time Long Island has a real jazz venue." - Frank Vignola
