GREENWICH VILLAGE, Manhattan — New York City might be slowly reopening, but it’s going to be awhile before entertainment and live music venues reopen safely.

New York’s iconic Blue Note jazz club has the answer as the storied Greenwich Village venue shifts to the new normal with a new virtual concert series.

“Blue Note Streaming Live” will feature renowned jazz artists performing live from the famous stage, but for audiences at home watching a livestream instead of a seated audience.

President of Blue Note Entertainment Group, Steven Bensusan, explained to the PIX11 Morning News how the concerts will work, why they decided to do it and how you can watch from the comfort of your couch.

The series kicks off Friday night with a set from Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Maurice “Mobetta” Brown.
