 SOME JAZZ FAX!

 

DID YOU KNOW THAT DURING THE 1920’S AND EARLY 30’S THERE WAS A TWO BLOCK AREA IN HARLEM, NY, BOUNDED BY LENNOX AVENUE AND 7TH AVENUE, AND STRETCHING FROM THE TOP OF CENTRAL PARK TO 133RD STREET. EVEN THOUGH PROHIBITION WAS LAW, ALCOHOL WAS READILY AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE AREA. “MARIHUANA” CIGARETTES WERE AVAILABLE AT 2 FOR 25 CENTS. THE AREA CONTAINED A DOZEN JAZZ VENUS THAT WERE THE CENTRE OF HARLEM LIFE, PLUS 100S OF OTHER “SPEAKEASIES”.

SOME OF THE CLUBS WERE: THE RADIUM CLUB – BIG BREAKFAST SERVED EVERY SUNDAY AT 4:OOAM, CLUB HOT-CHA – NOTHING HAPPENED BEFORE 2:00AM, AND NEXT DOOR THE LOG CABIN,

YEAH MAN  - “GO LATE”, GLADY’S CLAM HOUSE – GLADYS BENTLEY TICKLED THE IVORIES, LAFAYETTE THEATRE – HOME OF “BOJANGLES”, THE SAVOY BALLROOM – HOME OF THE LINDY HOP, THE ROOM HELD 4000 PEOPLE, THE COTTON CLUB – CAB CALLOWAY & DUKE ELLINGTON WERE REGULARS, IT WAS THE HANGOUT OF MANY CELEBRITIES LIKE AL JOLSON, EDDIE CANTOR,

SMALL’S PARADISE – HAD ELABORATE FLOOR SHOWS AND CHARLESTON-DANCING WAITERS, CONNIE’S INN- FAVOURITE SPOT OF THE ZIEGFELD FOLLIES GIRLS.

ELSEWHERE WAS THE ALHAMBRA THEATRE – BESSIE SMITH AND JELLY ROLL MORTON WERE REGULAR PERFORMERS AND BILLIE HOLIDAY WAS A WAITRESS, THE APOLLO THEATRE – ELLA FITZGERALD GOT HER FIRST BIG BREAK HERE. THE APOLLO STILL OPERATES AND DRAWS 1.3 MILLION VISITORS ANNUALLY.

 (THANKS TO ANDY SENIOR & “THE SYNCOPATED RAG”)

 


 

 

 

 

WHILE “THE KW DIXIELAND JAZZ CLUB” CAN’T QUITE COMPARE TO THESE HISTORIC JAZZ VENUES IT’S STILL THE BEST ONE AROUND.

 

SEE YOU SATURDAY

 

KEEP JAZZIN’
