"Secret jazz queen" Marjorie Eliot takes her act outdoors this weekend

Jazz pianist Marjorie Eliot performing at the Morris-Jumel Mansion

If you've ever dreamed of attending Marjorie Eliot's jazz parlor–the legendary free concert the jazz pianist has held in her Edgecombe Avenue apartment every Sunday afternoon since 1994–but have been too shy, you won't want to miss this weekend.

The Morris-Jumel Mansion's free annual outdoor jazz festival is back this Saturday and Sunday, and with it the perfect opportunity to hear Eliot and her ensemble of talented jazz musicians play in a more open setting: the spacious garden of the historic house.

"Harlem's secret jazz queen," Eliot is a true neighborhood institution who has been lovingly covered by The New York Times, NPR and countless other outlets. Witness a unique part of uptown history at this two-day event, running each afternoon from 2pm to 6pm.
