What we'll do

Jazz might have started in New Orleans, however Harlem elevated to the world stage! Each year thousands of visitors and tourists flock to Harlem club's seeking to experience and hear the soulful music that Harlem has come to be known for. No more waiting for the lights to go down to enjoy the soulful immortal sounds and rhythms of Duke Ellington, Lena Horne, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis (to name just a few).  Their voices live on throughout the city as performers pay tribute to these greats every night.       Every Tuesday afternoon Harlem play's host to some of today's most talented jazz musicians and history's greatest jazz music in a musical tribute of epic proportions. Concertgoers will spend each Tuesday afternoon surrounded by the cool vibrations of jazz as they are soothed and invigorated by seemingly magical strings and horns. This is an event for all of the senses, and it is meant to be both mentally and spiritually up lifting. The series is artistically directed by Craig Harris, a trombonist, composer and longtime Harlem resident. Harris has been a major figure in the Harlem jazz scene since 1976. He has performed throughout the USA and abroad with some of the genre's most important figures. Enjoy a tour across 125th Street, then a lovely stroll along Adam Clayton Powell Blvd., up to 135th Street area.  Then sit back and relax for a live jazz concert.    You’ll consider the occasion as one of your great afternoons out, so take the A train to 125th Street and get the party started.
