Harlem Original: Marjorie Eliot

Marjorie Eliot's Parlor Jazz Washington Heights

Harlem is alive with the sound of Jazz. For almost 3 decades, Queen Marjorie Eliot has held court at her home at 555 Edgecombe Ave on Sundays for a musical ministry. With Ms Eliot on the piano and talented musicians jamming in her living room, Parlor Jazz at apt 3F has become a global phenomenon. Folks from around the world make a pilgrimage to Harlem to meet “Harlem’s secret jazz queen of Sugar Hill.”

Kudos to Great Big Story for this wonderful profile of a Harlem Legend.
