Show Description:
After last season’s sold-out performances, this multi-media concert is back by popular demand! Welcome to the hottest spot in Harlem. In the 1920s and 30s the Cotton Club was the citadel of the New York jazz scene, its stage filled with the greatest black musical and theatrical talent this country has ever produced: Lena Horne, Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway and so many more. “Stormy Weather” was introduced there, and “I’ve Got the World on a String.” Internationally famous, the room attracted royalty. But the club also embodied American racism, with a “whites-only” admittance policy that sent its performers to the kitchen for supper. Get your tickets early as TMTP and Cleveland Jazz Orchestra join forces to document a stunning chapter in the history of American entertainment.

Co-hosted by Bill Rudman and Paul Ferguson | Featuring Cleveland Jazz Orchestra, the Joe Hunter Trio, John Morton, Treva Offutt and Evelyn Wright
