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 started to revive the local community jazz scene of the past when meeting Eric Lemons an accomplished string musician and now Co-Founder of BrownstoneJAZZ.

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.
