Harlem’s jazz scene has changed, but as you can see from our photos, it’s as vibrant as it’s been in decades. From swanky nightspots to intimate speakeasy-style joints and even private apartments, jazz is back in full swing. People come from down the block, or even as far as Europe and Japan, to hear the music nightly. “People are still absolutely interested in jazz,” said Rudel Drears, son of Marjorie Eliot and musical director of Parlor Entertainment. “It’s here to stay.”
