House Of Vibe : A Great Day In Harvelles
(after Art Kane)

One day in 1958 at 10 am, freelance photographer Art Kane shot a photo of 57 notable jazz musicians* in front of a brownstone on 126th Street, between Fifth and Madison Avenues in Harlem. Esquire published the photo in its January 1959 issue. There is a documentary about the taking of this photo - A Great Day In Harlem - which is well worth checking out.

Every Wednesday, The House Of Vibe All Stars, get together and throw down some of the funkiest, most vibrant music one can hear. It's a party, who's leader - Anthony Brewster - keeps it fresh and alive - a mid-week massive for all. On the wheels of steel, DJ Vicious Lee keeps it jumping all night long.

The gathering of this group, is no less significant. 
Come down and check it out. Every Wednesday at Harvelle's in Santa Monica.
