MARJORIE ELIOT AND THE PARLOR JAZZ CONCERTS
555 Edgecombe Avenue used to count Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Johnny Hodges, and Andy Kirk as residents. Today there is MARJORIE ELIOT AND THE PARLOR JAZZ CONCERTS. Every Sunday at 4 p.m. Eliot sets out folding chairs in her living room, cooks a batch of fried chicken, and showcases some of the city's finest musicians. Here on Sugar Hill, there are no cover charges, two-drink minimums, or rushed sets.
