7. Marjorie Eliot’s Parlor Jazz
The Roger Morris Apartments, named after 18th Century British Loyalist, have provided a home to famous tenants over the years, including activist Paul Robeson and pianist Count Basie. Still, it is perhaps best known for its atypical live jazz scene. For over 20 years, resident Marjorie Eliot has hosted jazz performances inside her Harlem parlor every Sunday. Visitors from all over the world come to honor the legacy of what she calls “African American classical music.”
SUN TOUR INFO: Marjorie Eliot’s Parlor Jazz at 555 Edgecombe Ave #3F will host two free and open- to-the-public parlor jazz performances (1:00 p.m. and 3:30pm) on Sunday.
