The Tim Warfield Holiday Concert was high quality jazz as promised and those olde Christmas tunes never sounded so good, with Tim's arrangements and the intimate venue. The lovely Joanna Pascale gave a sultry vocal performance while local great Cyrus Chestnut on piano was extraordinary. Marianne brought down the house with a lovely rendition of, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. All great stuff & great musicians many thanks to Marianne and Howard for putting this together.

Thank you!

Oh Jazzway... you've spoiled me for all other venues! Is it Howard and Marianne, the top notch musicians, the food, all the people that frequent there? I guess it is just the perfect combination. I love you Jazzway.

Gloria and Joseph Askin

October 14, 2012

You both are to be heartily applauded for your important support of jazz in Baltimore. To have opened your home in the way you do is extraordinary. Last nights comcert with the Sam King Quartet was wonderful. We can't wait to come back.

It was my first time attending a Jazzway 6004 event on Saturday and it was an awesome experience. Good music, a very comfortable environment, great customer service and good company made the evening perfect. By the way, the sweets were very good as well. I only wish the sets could have been longer because everything was so perfect. So thank you for extending your warm hospitality and I look forward to your future events.

Sue Joslow

The Warren Wolf- Jeremy Pelt concert was outstanding, this was our first concert at Jazzway 6004. Looking forward to the next one, GREAT MUSICIANS, GREAT FOOD, GREAT PEOPLE!!!

Bill Beran

June 12, 2011

My first visit was 6/11/11 for Warren Wolf, and I hope not the last. Warren's a great performer and had a great band. I knew about Jeremy Pelt, but when Tim Green--somebody I had never heard of before--joined for the last tune the level of music, already high, took off even higher. A memorable evening of music for those lucky Baltimoreans who were there.

Great evening June 11,2011. Brought a new friend and she was delighted. Thanks for keeping jazz alive & thanks for the great hospitality. A printed program would be nice with info on the artists.

Thanh Huynh

June 12, 2011

I was there on May 22 for Blake Meister's group and again yesterday evening to hear Warren Wolf's. The flavor of the musical offerings was very different for these two events but equally exciting. I can't wait to return in the fall.


June 11, 2011

Thank you for a great concert once again tonight! Best wishes for the next four years of great music!

Hi Howard and Marianne! thank you so much for having Zachary and I to your home for the JD Walter Quartet! We both had a wonderful time! Music, food and most importantly the company was FANTASTIC! We can't wait for the next event!

Cantor Emanuel C. Perlman

December 31, 2010

We had many missed opportunities that later became historically altering events; such as the Beatles, Elvis, and Coltrane with Curtis Fuller in concert.
Jazzway provides a rare "second chance." Not only did Howard and Marianne's fortunate guests hear Curtis Fuller in an intimate "living room" setting, they were treated to a "stagefull" of consummate musicians! What a memorable experience. Don't miss the next concert and an opportunity to hear Marianne's vocal and interpretive talent.

Dawn Vance

Congratulations on a great start to season 4 at Jazzway. Rachel Price's performance last night to a sold out crowd was fantastic!

Marianne and Howard, thank you for continuing to bring us great performers and opening up your home as a venue for musicians and artists. We are so lucky to have this in Baltimore.

Did I mention the desserts? As always, Marianne's home made chocolate cake, chocolate mousse cake, carrot cake and cheescake were a big hit!

Wishing Jazzway continued success.

Looking forward to the next concert.

Marianne and Howard, Thank you thank you thank you for bringing to Baltimore the absolutely most delightful way to spend an evening of jazz with other music lovers. Being able to talk to the musicians and other aficionados is a special treat, and speaking of treats your dinners are wonderful as well. Kudos to you and your associates that make this happen.

I met Debbie and Mike (from London), this evening at Night of the Cookers. They told me about 6004, and I couldn't wait to get home to check it out! I am anxiously awaiting your first fall 2009 concert, and can't wait to tell others about your "gift".

Jamie Mason

June 7, 2009

What a perfect way to spend my birthday: gracious hosts, inspired musicians, delectable house-made dinner and sumptuous birthday cake (since it was your birthday, too). Marianne and Howard, the fact that you open your home to strangers in support of local musicians is both astounding and marvelous. Keep up the worthy efforts, and know that I will continue to support and promote your intimate, exceptional venue. My sincere thanks for a brilliant evening!

Thank you Marianne and Howard for a wonderful weekend. Sheila Jordan and Jay Clayton are marvelous instructors. The Vocal Jazz Workshop was so delightful.
....And all that wonderful FOOD!!!
Thank you. I wish you continued success.

J.W. Cooper

May 18, 2009

Oh what a special treat we enjoyed tonight- Shelia Jordan’s “Voice and Bass”, with the smooth Cameron Brown, was so warm and entertaining, funny and sharp, covering so many classics with wit and charm. Quite the show-woman, Shelia sings and improvises like no other-it was a moving performance to behold and witness a true piece of jazz history. Shelia helps us to imagine those early days with Charlie Parker and the band. With great respect she honors jazz history and tradition, especially of those greats that passed way too soon. Her message to emerging musicians is to persevere and, “never, never, never give up”, as she has done.

A special guest duet with Jay Clayton added a sassy musical repartee and loving combination as each imitated and complimented the other. Likewise, a cameo by Todd Marcus on Clarinet added another fine dimension to the delightful evening soiree.

Where else can you have such an intimate atmosphere and be so up close and personal with the artists. The gourmet diner and desserts completed a perfect evening. Kudos to Marianne and Howard for making this all possible.

Todd & Judy Bolton

May 17, 2009

We had our first experience at Jazzway 5004 this past Friday evening. Wow! What a wonderful experience. Howard was a most gracious host and made us feel very welcome. Every aspect of the evening was perfect; Sheila Jordam and Cameron Brown in a comfortable living room setting. What a fabulous evening! Thank you so much for your hopspitality!

Todd & Judy Bolton

Lisa Rich

May 10, 2009

I've been getting your email via DC Jazz. I wish I could learn more about your venue, as I too am a jazz singer. I am a huge fan of Jay Clayton and Sheila's and Cameron played and recorded with me many years ago. I'm hoping to come hear one of my friends and take a workshop someday soon. The most important question is, are you handicap accessible? Thanks for supporting jazz. LISA RICH

Dear Marianne & Howard,
Thank you so much for having us at Jazzway 6004. It was indeed a pleasure to perform for such a wonderfully warm audience in such an absolutely "hip" venue. Very importantly, I'd like to thank you as well, for presenting jazz in the manner befitting to the art form... intimately, with elegance, style, and grace. Your hospitality goes unrivaled! All the best to you both in your future endeavors...

Rob Steinberg

December 21, 2008

My wife and I went to our first show at Jazzway last night where we saw Tim Warfield, Nicholas Payton and Joanna Pascale. The jazz, food and people were great but the most amazing thing was the venue. Where can you see the jazz talent of this caliber, literally eat dinner with them and then have them perform for you in your living room. This was absolutely amazing! I am still blown away by all this. Just absolutely amazing! We can't wait until next month.

Larry Love

December 20, 2008

Perhaps Baltimore's best kept secret, once again Jazzway treated us to a delightful holiday performance and this time with nationally acclaimed artists. Even Miles and Coltrane would be proud of the way that Nicholas Payton and Tim Warfield delivered tonight. This band was in sync with vocalist Joanna Pascale, for a truely memorable night.
With top quality music, gourmet food and the warm personal venue what more could you ask for. Kudos to Marianne, Howard B and the volunteers- just outstanding.

Alex Silverbook

December 20, 2008

Bob and Debra

November 18, 2008

We thoroughly enjoyed the Susan Jones Quartet and the great Jazzway 6004 venue. We were amazed at how well Marianne fit in with the Quartet on her vocal set. As first-timers we were made to feel very comfortable by Howard and Marianne. We especially liked the visits by Bessie as she made her rounds. The dinner was terrific and exceeded our expectations. Thanks for a great evening.


November 15, 2008

Fabulous! How can you say thank you for someone that offers so much? I'll be back and bring more jazz fans with me.

Valerie Simonds

October 20, 2008

The concert on Oct 17,2008 was outstanding. Marianne's voice is amazing and the jazz muicians were wonderful. I am not sure whether Marianne should devote herself to singing or cooking since the food was as "4 star" as the music. Howard and Marianne are gracious hosts and adorable Betsy was the perfect additional group member.

Sue Carlin

October 18, 2008

Wow! Joel Holmes and his quartet were absolutely fabulous. Marianne and Howard are the best hosts I have ever had the pleasure to meet! Thank you for a wonderful evening and I look forward to attending another concert at Jazzway 6004.
