5-8pm: The Shrine Sunday Jazz Jam Session with Lu Reid

Spontaneous Jazz does not happen at Lincoln Center...or BAM!!! It is still in Harlem, where my friends and I live it every day. All the musicians on these streets are stars. When I was a kid and I first heard the sweet language of that magical Jazz I was hooked for life. You just soaked it up and couldn't help but be moved by it as you walked the streets. I can still feel that kaleidoscope of sound, and I want to bring it to you each and every Sunday.

11pm-12am: Mike B.

I am a guitarist. I am a beatboxer. I am a vocalist. Over the last few years I have been exploring a technique where I do all three simultaneously, writing music that emphasizes every element to my fullest ability. I want to capture the magic and mystery of all my idols; bring my music to people and bring people to me through my music. I’m not interested in styles or labels, fitting neatly into a category in the record rack. I want to listen and harness that which makes great music great, and smash those barriers we’ve invented to keep each other separate. In doing so, one begins to lose their identity.
