Jazzmobile's Free Live Jazz Concerts at Grant's Tomb and Marcus Garvey Park Are Back Through the Summer

These Free Live Jazz Concerts at Grant's Tomb Are Back for the Summer
Grant's Tomb is the setting for live jazz every Wednesday starting July 10.

Harlem is home to many free outdoor jazz concerts in the summer, but there's one that stands out: Jazzmobile's series at Grant's Tomb and Marcus Garvey Park.

And it kicks off this week.

As part of its annual Summerfest, the venerable Harlem-based jazz organization begins its season of live performances this Friday, July 5 at 7pm at the Richard Rogers Amphitheater in Marcus Garvey Park and next Wednesday, July 10 at 7pm on the steps of the iconic General Grant National Memorial.

The first concert in Marcus Garvey Park features jazz vocalist and guitarist Allan Harris, followed over the next weeks by Craig Harris, Danny Mixon and Endea Owens.

The inaugural concert at Grant's Tomb includes the Jimmy Heath Big Band with music director Antonio Hart, followed over the next weeks by Patience Higgins, Winard Harper and Houston Person. Attendees are encouraged to bring a chair and sit in the leafy plaza right in front of the classical mausoleum on Riverside Drive and 122nd Street.

Can't make it this month? The season runs all the way through September 20.
