The Lost Jazz Shrines series is dedicated to bringing legendary NYC jazz clubs back into the consciousness of the world with a thorough remembrance and celebration.  Boomer’s was a jazz club in Greenwich Village, New York City, during the 1970s. The club was a venue for bebop musicians, and artists Barry Harris and Kenny Barron played there. At the club, Cedar Walton recorded the albums, A Night at Boomers, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.  Cedar Walton was an American hard bop jazz pianist. He came to prominence as a member of drummer Art Blakey’s band before establishing a long career as a bandleader and composer. Several of his compositions have become jazz standards, including “Mosaic”, “Bolivia”, “Holy Land”, “Mode for Joe” and “Fantasy in D.”  Additionally, there will be a 7PM Free Panel Discussion TBD.
