Your jazz guide will arrange the best itinerary for your chosen night for a unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience!

The itinerary changes nightly and includes thrilling clubs like:

  • A speakeasy with roots going back to prohibition and the discovery of Billie Holiday by John Hammond
  • New Harlem spots on their way to becoming legendary — all with their own special charms

This tour is for everyone! Are you a player or singer? Join the jam. If you like to move, get up and dance! If you just want to groove, hang back, and let the music wash over you.
