JAS Cafe Winter Series Kickoff
The JAS Café Downstairs at the Nell began as a series of (3) monthly winter concerts in 2010. In 2012, responding to increasing public demand, JAS expanded the series dramatically to include (8) weekends of winter performances and (7) individual summer evening concerts, making consistent jazz programming in Aspen a truly year-round presence for the first time in JAS’ 22 year history. This unique and intimate space which seats just over 100 persons, has been described as “an oasis of cosmopolitan cool” and a new home for sophisticated music listeners in Aspen. The intimate Little Nell location affords attendees the option of eating from the Nell Bar menu a selection of small plate options. The small tables, café seating and candle-lit ambiance, combined with the scintillating performances, has earned the series wide acclaim, great buzz and a steady flow of repeat local patrons and tourists alike.
