Long Description: Bopping On 52 Street, Jazz Music, Bebop, instrumental music, independent music and stock music
Keywords: In its heyday from 1930 through the early 1950s, 52nd Street clubs hosted such jazz legends as Miles Davis, Harry Gibson, Dizzy Gillespie, Billie Holiday, Nat Jaffe, Marian McPartland, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Louis Prima, Art Tatum, Fats Waller, and many more. Although musicians from all schools performed there, after Minton's Playhouse in uptown Harlem, 52nd Street was the second most important place for the dissemination of bebop;. In fact, a tune called "52nd Street Theme" by Thelonious Monk became a bebop anthem and jazz standard.
People came to hear real musicians playing like a flock of birds all bringing their individuality to music. Playing real instruments and everyone loved it.
I have tried to open a window on the 1950, s and let the fresh air in.
