Fantastic Harlem jazz tour on Oscar night Sunday

I wanted to go to Harlem to the jazz clubs but I wasn't about to go not knowing where to to go and how to get there. We were a group of 2 Chinese mothers with a teenager and a young classical musician from China. We needed a tour guide like Gordon, who was very friendly and knowledgeable and took us to three different clubs as an introduction to jazz. We went to The Shrine, The Legion and Paris Blues which were all hole-in-the-wall joints. Had soul food at the Legion which was very good. Must have the rum cake! Paris Blues was most fun. Would go back again.

Our guide Amanda was just terrific - full of energy and life and knowledge of her neighborhood. We hit several jazz clubs and had plenty of time to enjoy drinks and food, never felt rushed. I also felt lucky to have a such great group for the tour! Make sure you wear appropriate attire and comfortable foot wear, there is some walking involved, and prepare yourself to learn a great deal about the history of Harlem, the history jazz and bebop, and the enormous contributions of African-Americans to the culture.

Stellar jazz, seating just a few feet from the musicians and low-priced tickets should put this at the top of your musical bucket list while in the city.

Great experience -Amanda made the difference to the tour it was informative and great fun - each venue was excellent - And most of all good music

The concert was absolutely lovely. TK Blue Quartlet were brilliant and so talented. We had a lovely evening.
