I haven't attended a concert in this version of the club, but I doubt it would be overloud. I would expect a pretty minimalist sound system/amplification in such a small place. The prior version of the Kitano was smaller (!), on the second floor of the hotel. I recollect going there three times--I saw trios led by pianists Steve Kuhn, Onajee Alan Gumbs, and Kevin Hays there.

It's in a really nice Japanese owned hotel on Park Avenue.

Monday's got an ever-expanding "What Is Jazz?" playlist going on Spotify and the selections are, to put it mildly, eclectic. Old farts, neo-cons, and anybody else who feels a need to own the word and/or the music will seldom be pleased. although there is music from Art Blakey, Wayne Shorter, Thelonious Monk, Joe Henderson/Alice Coltrane, a.o., there's a lot of other stuff that is nothing like that. But this is one person's experience...and it includes both Doug Carn and Woody Herman, Shirley Horn and Earth, Wind, & Fire, so it's not like I can't relate.

 

Oh, and it's got this little gem:
