Jazz in San Juan Hill

Jazz thrived over generations in San Juan Hill, a historic Manhattan neighborhood home to many iconic musicians and performance venues in the first half of the twentieth century. Jazz musicians who lived and performed there fueled a vibrant creative community and evolved the genre through the stride piano, swing, and bebop eras. James Reese Europe, James P. Johnson, Benny Carter, Thelonious Monk, and countless others who lived and worked in the neighborhood broke new ground musically and shaped an art form that has captivated listeners worldwide.
