Jazz Power Initiative’s Intergenerational Jazz Jam brings together singers, musicians, dancers, spoken word artists and audiences of all ages to experience the power of jazz, community, and swing. Jams take place on the second Sunday of each month from 2-5 PM at the National Jazz Museum in Harlem located at 58 West 129th Street in Manhattan.

Pianist and master educator Eli Yamin has a way of bringing people together through jazz. He’s a blues evangelist who partners an infectious love for the music with a passion for sharing it in ways that everyone can understand. His musical workshops, full of clapping, singing, dance and play, invite listeners to feel the music deep in their bones.

Here, Yamin and friends kick off the afternoon with a romping set of blues and jazz, followed by an all-ages jam session open to musicians, singers, and dancers of every stripe.
