(NEW) City Cafe opens in Harlem

City Cafe is now open on the corner of 125 and Amsterdam.  If I recall the location used to house a famous soul food diner.  From 125th Street to 110th Street all along Amsterdam has a wide range of restaurants such as Kitchenette along with Max Soha.

All of the businesses and restaurants do quite well along this busy strip filled with Columbia University students and faculty.  Kitchenette continues to be one of our favorite breakfast / brunch places here at HarlemCondoLife with incredible breakfast cuisine and delicious baked goods.  Expect a 10 to 30 minute wait on weekends for this popular Harlem restaurant.

Swing by City Cafe, say hello and welcome them.

Sunday Jazz Corner with Al Jarreau, George Benson & Jill Scott

What do you get when you mix Jill Scott, Al Jarreau and George Benson together?  One of the best versions of the jazz classic “God Bless The Child” in the last decade.  How can you go wrong with these music greats.  Seven-time Grammy Award winning Al Jarreau has an endless list of albums and hit songs and collaborations throughout his long and successful career.  Grammy-winning  Jill Scott glides beautifully from R&B, Neo Soul to Jazz standards with such ease in her unique style and thunderous talent.  George Benson is known for his famous guitar-vocal style which has made him a ten-time Grammy Award winning artist with one of the best songs in my opinion of all time “This Masquerade.”

Below is a video version of their recording of God Bless The Child which is available on iTunes on 2 different albums  Jill Scott Collaborations and  George Benson & Al Jarreau “Givin It Up”.  Both albums are great!  Preview them for yourself after listening to God Bless The Child, and download a copy.  Hope that you enjoyed Sunday Jazz Corner this week.
