• Music is the medium.

    Minton’s features live jazz with every seating. The Minton’s Players consist of a rotating crew of “old school” jazz musicians, many of whom actually played at Minton’s Playhouse back in the day.

  • “New Movement In Jazz”  is a renaissance – not seen since the ’50s – happening in NYC right now. It consists of a diverse group of jazz artists breathing new life into the genre. Instead of deconstructing the music they are reinvigorating it with inventiveness, originality, passion, style, and zeal. This elicits an unprecedented excitement for all who are “in the know”.

    At the vortex of the movement is Minton’s, which is appropriate since this is where the bebop revolution began over a half a century ago.

    The Wall Street Journal captures the idea:

    “The birthplace of bebop, Minton’s on 118th Street, has been reborn as a venue that is as classy as it is historic. 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.”
