As the legendary jazz pianist/composer (and mentor to Duke Ellington) Willie "The Lion" Smith once said: "I'd rather be a fly on a lamppost in Harlem than a millionaire anywhere else." His remark still holds true today: Harlem is in the midst of a new renaissance of culture, commerce and tourism.
Outside of its native New Orleans, no community has nurtured jazz more than Harlem. Duke Ellington, Benny Carter, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Charles Mingus, Count Basie, John Coltrane, Billie Holiday - all of their unique sounds reverberated throughout these fabled streets. Their legacy continues as the jazz musicians of today have also found a home in this community for their own contemporary sounds. The National Jazz Museum in Harlem is dedicated to fostering this spirit -the music as a living, breathing entity that looks as far into the future as it does into the past.
