Jazz in Harlem

Jazz clubs may have thrived in Harlem during the 1920s, but they have since become a rarity in the area — especially with staples like St. Nick’s Pub and Minton’s Playhouse closing their doors. On this episode of BTR Pulse, we talk to locals about the neighborhood’s rich history and the current status of its live music scene.

Featured song: “Peasant Boy” by Explosions Bob James Trio, “No. 6” by New York Art Quartet
