Sunday Night Jazz with Shirley Zafirau
This original jazz tour was created by Shirley Zafirau, your guide. It traces the 100 year evolution of Jazz in NYC from it's early 1900's introduction to the present. It begins in the center of Harlem near the now closed historic Lenox Lounge with a brief walk to the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, then past the famous Apollo Theater with a bit of local jazz history commentary followed by two Jazz Club stops. The first is an under-the-radar club in a Harlem brownstone that serves up delicious soul food, drinks and a hot international jazz jam session with Hammond B3, tenor sax, electric guitar, drum set, etc. We'll then travel via the 'A' train made famous by Ellington & Ella to a second more sophisticated club with live jazz, food & drinks. Before going to this club, Shirley will share some fascinating historical facts that illustrate the ironic "back to the future" aspect of this location. The evening ends approximately 11:00-11:30pm.
