Learn to forgive yourself. We are all only human. We will make mistakes. Plenty of them. But learn to find the lesson in every misstep. Have it bring value to your world. Never let it bring you down. We are always a work in progress, and that is okay. 🙏💕✨

Minton’s Playhouse holds a very important place in the history of jazz, America’s greatest contribution to music. In the 1940’s, jazz was experiencing a transition from the big band driven sounds of the Swing Era to a more sophisticated music that featured small groups, faster tempos, and herculean technique. This was “musician’s music” and traded adventurous dancers for eager listeners. Eventually, this new style of jazz came to be called “Bebop” and it’s vocabulary was largely refined on the stage at Minton’s Playhouse.
It is with this spirit that we proudly announce the “Minton’s Legacy Jam Session”, a new jam session to honor the music that turned Minton’s Playhouse into one of the most culturally significant jazz clubs in New York City. We aim to give artists a platform to work out new ideas while trying to reach their highest level of artistry, just like that group of young, bold musicians did in the 1940’s.
