Ray Chew and Vivian Scott Chew have announced that their production company, Chew Entertainment, will celebrate African-American History Month at historic Harlem eatery Minton’s (206 West 118th Street, New York, NY). “Our Music, Our History” will be a two-day event on Monday, February 24th and Tuesday, February 25th and will feature two sets each evening at 7:30pm and 10pm.
Former Time Warner CEO and music lover Richard Parsons, along with his business partner Restaurateur/Executive Chef Alexander Smalls are responsible for the rebirth of Minton’s which they renovated and re-opened in October. An incubator for the Modern Jazz era, Minton’s once hosted late-night jam sessions by iconic African-American musicians and vocalists such as Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Dizzy Gillespie.
This sounds great!
