You can still get Paris Blues in Harlem

Tove Langhof quartet is rounding out it’s November residency at Paris Blues on the corner of 121st and Adam Clayton Powell in Harlem, NYC. I saw them play last Tuesday night on a ridiculously rainy evening that made the music become evermore jazz age. Minus the “Dancing with the Stars” on the flatscreen propped behind the bassist, I pretended I was listening to the hot and cool of musicians in Harlem’s jazz heyday. Don’t let Paris Blues’ shabby interiors detract. You’ll be sure to have an unique experience that you’ll be glad you didn’t miss. No cover. But drop a few to feed the musicians. Drinks are strong and made by a Jamaican woman who has been working there for 10 years. You might even hear Thriller, Hot in Herre, or Who let the Dogs Out? while the musicians take a break between sets.

Come hear jazz standards by some great musicians. I’ll be there.
Next Tuesday, November 26th @ 9pm
