New Jazz Movement Coming To Minton’s In harlem

July 29, 2014

mintons jazz movement in harlemThe “New Movement In Jazz” is a cultural Renaissance happening in Harlem New York right now. It consists of a diverse group of jazz artists breathing new life into a style of music that has been static for, depending on who you ask, at least thirty years. These artists are not deconstructing the music so much as reinvigorating it with passion, originality, inventiveness, style, and zeal. We find Minton’s in Harlem at the vortex of this movement, which is appropriate since that’s where the bebop revolution began over a half a century ago.

Wednesday Nights ? JC Hopkins Biggish Band Ft Queen Esther Time | 7:00PM – 11:00PM

Minton’s is hosting the JC Hopkins Biggish Band featuring Queen Esther for a residency of Wednesday gigs. Grammy nominated JC Hopkins and his ensemble of pedigreed jazz musicians swing hard and passionately through original material penned by Hopkins but also feature Bop tunes initially crafted at Minton’s back in the day by Thelonious Monk, Bird and Diz, expanded for a semi-big jazz conglomeration. Queen Esther, with sass and finesse fronts the band, with her evocative voice and massive range, interpreting new material as well as covering lesser-known songs from Billie Holiday’s canon. Each night is expected to be a real happening.



TIME | 5:30PM – 9:30PM

Minton’s is introducing a Sunday series that combines classical instrumentation in the jazz context; featuring some of the most talented exemplars of that idiom on the scene today.
