The Wide, Wide, Wonderful World of The Apollo

Too much has been made of what distinguishes jazz from its close musical cousins in all genres of music, and this evening we’ll look for the close musical relationship between all sorts of Apollo Music. Aretha Franklin, Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Michael Jackson, Ethel Waters, B.B. King, Louis Armstrong, Gladys Knight, Tito Puente and Ray Charles will fill out musical menu as we listen to what binds them all inextricably to Harlem and to the Apollo.
