These are the best photos taken with the worst cell phone camera of the best underground jazz scene from Harlem to Greenwich Village here in New York City. Most photos taken by me during my nightly jazz crawls with Big Apple Jazz Tours - now in its 15th year.
Michael Sarian, trumpet, was 13 years old when his parents took him on a Harlem jazz tour with us. They were living in Argentina. Now Michael is a Harlem jazz musician that we’re taking other guests to hear play 13 years later.
