The Jazz Museum in Harlem is a not-for-profit arts organization dedicated to building a world-class jazz museum in Harlem. Jazz Museum in Harlem directors are Conductor/saxophonist/scholar Loren Schoenberg and internationally-acclaimed bassist Christian McBride. Outside of its native New Orleans, no community nurtured jazz more than Harlem. Duke Ellington, Benny Carter, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Charles Mingus, Count Basie, John Coltrane, Billie Holiday - all of their unique sounds reverberated throughout these fabled streets. Their legacy continues as the jazz musicians of today have also found a home in this community for their own contemporary sounds. The Jazz Museum in Harlem is dedicated to fostering this spirit - the music as a living, breathing entity that looks as far into the future as it does into the past.

Visitors Center is now open Thursday - Monday 11am - 5pm  (closed Tuesday, Wednesday) and chock full of books, CDs and DVDs for your perusal. There is also a first-class exhibit of photos on the walls.
