The Blue Note, one of our most important partners with Blue Note at Sea, is much more than the famed club located on W. 3rd Street in New York City. There are Blue Note clubs in Napa Valley, Hawaii, Japan and even China. They also produce shows at the newly opened Sony Hall on Times Square and the Highline Ballroom in Chelsea. And every year throughout the entire month of June, they host the Blue Note Jazz Festival, a citywide festival at various venues in New York City — including the Blue Note, Highline Ballroom, Sony Hall, Town Hall and Central Park SummerStage. Among the performers at this Sony-sponsored festival are Gregory Porter, Manhattan Transfer, Chris Botti, Eddie Palmieri, Al Di Meola and many more.
