We spent two hours listening to a great set. The Church was bright and airy and the quality of music fabulous. Great vibe and something a little different from the norm in NYC.
Such a great find! We’re just here for the Music, it’s a perfect break during the day and was a unique opportunity for our 3 years old to discover Jazz music. Takes place in a unique Harlem church and nearby great restaurants, subway stop.
« There’s more to Harlem than just fried chicken and Gospel. Don’t get boxed in! » Craig Harris. Make sure you check this Harlem hidden gem.
The music is very sophisticated, tasteful and original. Most importantly, the atmosphere was very friendly and all the musicians are incredibly articulate and eager to engage with the audience. I chatted with Eddie, Jerome the drum player, Kenny the bassist, and they were all happy to educate me on the history of the pieces played, the theoretical knowledge behind their playing and much more. Highly recommended!
