"Pass-the-Hat" Monthly Matinee
-Enjoy live jazz flute over a cup of coffee-

From December 2017, we will hold our monthly "pass-the-hat" Saturday matinee at JEREMY'S as we extend our imagination to the days when Jeremy was an aspiring young musician in Greenwich Village.

JEREMY'S opened in Yokohama, Japan on September 22 to pay tribute to the late jazz flutist/artist Jeremy Steig. (We'll be in business till the end of May 2020.) It is a cozy space where guests can enjoy his favorite coffee and sweets and view/purchase his drawings.

The interior of the gallery/cafe is inspired by the many pictures Jeremy drew of New York's coffee houses from the '50s and '60s, where he began performing when he was still in high school. At coffee houses, people passed a hat around to pay the performers. According to his own account, he used to hang out with waitresses and musicians, and drew on paper napkins after school. There, everything began for Jeremy as a professional musician. To view details click here.

Matinee Report

On April 14, 2018, Ms. Rie Akagi and Ms. Akane Noguchi played the special matinee commemorating the second anniversary of Jeremy's death. Ms. Akagi played some jazz standards on Jeremy's Haynes from his 1969 recording with Bill Evans. The duo gave an encore, which was Handel's Largo to solemnly conclude the concert.
