During the 1930 perhaps even earlier, Harlem was not the only Jazz scene. Brooklyn had one as well. Bedford Stuyvesant had one of the largest Jazz neighborhoods around. Bed Stuy held many venues housing jazz greats like Thelonius Monk, Lena Horn, Randy Weston, Miles Davis, Max Roach, Hank Mobley, Abbey Lincoln, plus others. Paramount Theatre located in Brooklyn among other theaters held major Jazz Concerts. All things eventually changed, and jazz club fizzled out in favor of a different music generation. Uptown and Midtown changed as well.
Debbie McClain, owner of Sankofa Aban Bed and Breakfast looked to revive the local community jazz scene of the past when she met her partner, Eric Lemons.
DebbieMc, along with Eric Lemons an accomplished string musician and Co-Founder of BrownstoneJAZZ values authenticity and selectiveness when deciding who to feature, and when.
This is Salon Jazz. No need for bells, whistles or amps. Even though Cow bells and lip whistling are welcomed for a tune or two, just pucker up if you must. Intimate, classic acoustic concerts, plain and simple every Friday and Saturday night. A fun loving atmosphere of live jazz for everyone.
You’re invited to spend a magical evening of music with Debbie and Eric taking you behind the scenes undercover some unheard of jazz history with a different experience. You can purchase the right ticket and get there early, meet the performers, before you take a seat for a Jazz Fest of a lifetime.
