[Great big story]

“Every Sunday, for the past 24 years, Marjorie Eliot and Rudel Drears open the doors of their Harlem apartment to anyone in the mood for jazz. Initially beginning the apartment sessions as a way to honor her son’s passing, Marjorie’s concerts soon gained popularity and began attracting visitors from all corners of the world. Today, Marjorie’s matinees have become iconic, continuing to restore, renew and unite people all through the magic of music”.
