Glenn Close’s pup steals the show at Lincoln Center gala

Glenn Close’s white Havanese dog, Pip, was the star of the night at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 30th anniversary gala.

Close hosted the event and brought the dog onstage with her.

We’re told Pip was even specially entertained backstage by some of the performers.

“Paquito D’Rivera played his clarinet for Pip. The dog was treated to a private performance by one of the world’s greatest jazz musicians,” a spy told us.

Tony Bennett was honored at the gala. His longtime friend and Barnes & Noble founder, Len Riggio, surprised him by presenting him with an award.

Wynton Marsalis, Brandon Marshall, Judith Jamison, Jon Batiste, NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, Charles Rangel and NBA commissioner emeritus David Stern were also among the guests.

Jazz at Lincoln Center released the album “United We Swing” earlier this year to commemorate its 30th anniversary.

The album features collaborations with Lenny Kravitz, John Mayer, John Legend, Eric Clapton and the late Ray Charles.
