If you were an average African American resident of Harlem in the 1920s, you would hear the best jazz musicians performing in speakeasies and other jazz entertainment venues such as Harlem’s world-famous Cotton Club. Both blacks and whites gathered in jazz clubs in large numbers to listen to jazz bands, illicitly consume alcohol and dance to the Charleston. Many influential jazz bandleaders and composers of the roaring twenties especially performed at the Cotton Club in Harlem, the most closely associated with it being Duke Ellington. Other seminal jazz musicians associated with the Cotton Club years include Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Bill Robinson, Ethel Waters and the Nicholas Brothers.
