About Cafe Bohemia:
Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Lester Young, Charles Mingus, Roy Eldridge, Ben Webster, Kenny Clarke, Art Blakey, Kenny Dorham, Randy Weston all not only played here at the Cafe Bohemia but RECORDED legendary albums here. Cannonball Adderley was discovered here overnight. Monk hung out here. Oscar Pettiford led the house band. Charlie Parker invented the place. Before it was the Cafe Bohemia, it was the Pied Piper where Max Kaminsky and Frankie Newton led the house band at different times and James P. Johnson and Willie "The Lion" Smith had cutting contests. 15 Barrow Street was an epicenter.
With Jazz landmarks on the brink everywhere, the reopening of Cafe Bohemia is truly a triumph of Jazz preservation and continuity.
