If you like jazz in any or all of its configurations, boy do we have a surprise. In fact first time visitors to the Jazz Corner, tucked away in the Village at Wexford, are truly amazed. The talent is extraordinary and the food is superb. The bar is perfect. The staff couldn’t be friendlier.
Are we getting carried away? Not by a long shot. While during his visit here, the legendary jazz piano great John Bunch said, “I wish there was something like this in New York.”
The Jazz Corner was the brain child of Bob Masteller and Charlie Swift. A businessman, Charlie loved classical music and jazz.
There is not a bad seat in the house, er, restaurant. The intimate room is acoustically perfect. What’s more the live entertainment comes with your meal. There is seldom a cover charge except on weekends when a marquee name or band comes to town, like when Hotlanta comes to play or the Jazz Corner is raising money for the Junior Jazz Foundation (JJF).
The Jazz Corner is in a corner of The Village at Wexford. To get the exact location, visit the Village at Wexford website. It’s just off William Hilton Parkway, one stoplight away from the Sea Pines traffic circle.
Oh, yes- It’s a good idea to make reservations. Call 843-842-8620 or visit the website.
