Jazz returns to a Brooklyn Brownstone
Jazz has made a comeback in Debbie's grandparents elegantly restored brownstone. After converting to a Bed and Breakfast years ago, she started looking for a way to build community.
NBC’s Lester Holt reports.
The restored 1800's Victorian Brownstone building in a Landmarked Historical District of Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn presents a walk in salon style acoustic sound room concert series that offers a fish fry buffet. The feel of being in your own home with your shoes off, with an authentic jazz vibe. Imagine retreating back to a different time and spend the evening in an intimate setting. Experience the enjoyment of live Jazz Concert, a Southern Fish Fry Buffet and Open Mic that will delight your palette. Included in the experience is an Upright Grand Piano, such as the ones once used to create some of today's classic Jazz tunes on Pan Alley Row Grouped alongside other acoustic style instruments in what we call THE ROOM. During the 1930 perhaps even earlier, one didn't have to go to Manhattan for the Jazz scene Brooklyn had one of it's own. Bedford Stuyvesant had the largest Jazz neighborhood in Brooklyn which held many venues that housed jazz greats like Thelonius Monk, Randy Weston, Miles Davis, Max Roach, Hank Mobley and others. All eventually changed, and jazz club fizzled out in favor of a different generation of music.
Debbie McClain, owner of Sankofa Aban Bed and Breakfast is seeking to revive the local jazz scene of the past, along with partner Eric Lemons.

DebbieMc never set out to own a BnB, but once she did magic happened. A hairstylist by trade when her grandparents 1939 home fell into her lap to save and maintain. Much bad energy once filled the property, but she knew that music would cleanse this 19th century home.
Debbie McClain once a long time piano student is just one of now the 6 generational family of music lovers. Also at the same time she would be able to show and share the beauty of the homes from Brooklyn begone.
Continuing the history of the neighborhood, a group of jazz locals and broadway greats like Blue Note recording artist James Spaulding, Trombonist/ Euphonist Kiane Zawadi and vocalist Keisha St. James aside actress/singer Boncella Lewis gather each week and connect over music in a tradition that's diminished, but clearly not lost, along with a style of living from another time.
BrownstoneJAZZ now offers other tours along with other delicious beverage and bites, on special days and times.
