Since moving to New York City in 1999, woodwind performer and saxophonist Ben Kono has been attracting attention as a singular emerging voice in cutting-edge groups like Darcy James Argue's Secret Society and the John Hollenbeck Large Ensemble.

He has performed and recorded with, among many others, Michael Brecker, David Liebman, Kenny Wheeler, Toots Thielemans, Michel LeGrand, Tim Garland, Joe Locke and David Taylor; with superstars Patti Austin, Deborah Gibson, Hugh Jackman and Liza Minelli.

Plan your next great evening out with the Harlem Jazz Singers Showcase. See talent like Tina Fabrique, Lynette Washington, Melanie Charles, Boncellia Lewis, Brianna Thomas, Emily Braden, Seydurah Avecmoi, Irene Blackman, Gary Samuels, and many more.Gin Fizz is a supper club right next to Red Rooster Harlem and conveniently located steps away from the 2/3 Train's 125th Street stop on Lenox Ave. You will think you exited the subway and stepped into the kind of jazz age speakeasy which brought this neighborhood international fame during Prohibition and the Harlem Renaissance.Check our link to see who's coming up this week.
