We will take a twenty minute luxury bus ride to Baker's Keyboard Lounge, which has significance as a jazz mecca and the country's oldest jazz club in continuous operation. Founded in May 1933 by Chris Baker as a restaurant and piano bar, the present jazz orientation of the club has been firmly in place since 1939. Baker's Keyboard Lounge has hosted the greatest names in blues and jazz since that date. Some of the musicians who have played the club include: Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson, George Shearing, Sarah Vaughn, Joe Williams, Maynard Ferguson, Cab Calloway, Woody Herman, Modern Jazz Quartet, and Nat "King" Cole; to name but a few.
We will dine on some of the best soul food imaginable while the band plays. This is an opportunity to experience a bit of truly authentic culture that the average tourist rarely finds.
