MONTCLAIR, NJ — A Montclair music venue that's gained a reputation as one of the best jazz clubs in New Jersey is up for sale, reports say.
Over the past three decades, Trumpets has hosted world-renowned acts such as Wynton Marsalis, Gato Barbieri and Dave Valentin. But after being purchased by wife-and-husband duo Kristine Massari and Enrico Granafei in 1999, the ownership of the club – which sits at 6 Depot Square near the corner of Walnut Street – may be about to change hands again.
The property is listed with Keller Williams for $3.6 million, and comes with one of Montclair's coveted liquor licenses. It's located in a mixed-use building that also has apartment upstairs with separate entrances, and is "equipped with everything you need to start your own business… a full kitchen, bar counter, refrigerators," realtors stated.
Annual taxes come to $31,089, Keller Williams' website states.
Massari, who teaches in West Orange, told NorthJersey.com that she and her husband are "ready to move on to a new part of life."

The club will stay open and continue to host events until the right buyer – hopefully someone who wants to keep it as a music venue – comes along, she said.
The property also has a pair of three-bedroom apartments, one of which Massari and Granafei live in. It was put on the market about two weeks ago, according to Montclair Local.
A listing on Realtor.com for 6 Depot Square in Montclair shows photos of the building containing Trumpets, as well as the surrounding property, although it makes no specific mention of the jazz club. (See the full listing here)
According to the venue's website:
"Trumpets first opened in 1985 and it soon became the best jazz venue in the state of New Jersey. The best musicians in the world performed at Trumpets: Gato Barbieri, Wynton Marsalis, and Dave Valentin, to name a few. In October 1999, the club was acquired by Enrico Granafei and Kristine Massari. A musician himself, Enrico used to perform at Trumpets years ago. The Italian harmonica player, guitarist and composer is determined to maintain the tradition of this legendary jazz club."
