The Jazz Museum in Harlem has been going through some renovations throughout the past few years, and now with associate artistic director Jonathan Batiste on board, things have been going better than ever. Batiste is a masterful musician and educator. In his role at the museum Batiste has implemented the Jazz Is: Now! program in which Batiste and his Stay Human Band (now touring Europe) deconstructs jazz music for fans going through the music and history. Also on board with the museum is legendary bassist Christian McBride who, along with Batiste and artistic director Loren Schoenberg, are preparing to open a new 10,000-square-foot facility for the museum across from the Apollo Theater on 125th Street. Check out the New York Times article below and be sure to follow the programs going on at the National Jazz Museum in Harlem.
