The Wednesday night residency continues!  The newly revived, iconic jazz venue Minton’s Playhouse is hosting the JC Hopkins Biggish Band each Wednesday from 7pm – 11pm. Featuring special guest vocalists Queen Esther and Charles Turner as well as a host of New York City’s hottest jazz musicians — including Claire Daly on baritone sax, Julian Pressly on tenor sax and Seneca Black on trumpet — the home of bebop comes alive in fresh and unexpected ways.

“The birthplace of bebop, Minton’s on 118th Street, has been reborn as a venue that is as classy as it is historic. The long-neglected room has now been remodeled into one of the most attractive venues in the city, with a menu that puts most Midtown clubs to shame. The combination of pianist-bandleader JC Hopkins and vocalist Queen Esther expertly recapture the vitality and energy of Harlem jazz and blues of 70 years ago without slavishly imitating anyone and are thus a perfect fit, and they should help the relaunched room attract the attention of dancers as well as diners.” — The Wall Street Journal
