Journey back to the dance halls and jazz clubs of San Juan Hill of the late 1800s and early 1900s with host Loren Schoenberg (saxophonist and senior scholar at The National Jazz Museum) and rising star, jazz pianist Sean Mason. Long before Harlem gained its rightful place as a center of African American cultural achievement, San Juan Hill was the home and a nurturing neighborhood for the creative spirits of many of jazz’s greatest artists. James P. Johnson, Benny Carter, and Thelonious Monk are just three of the legendary artists who lived and played there, and it was where West Side Story was set. Join us for an intriguing and interrogative look into many of the vital stories that intersect with this too long-forgotten community.
