“New York, the ‘Big Apple,’ the jazz mecca” was printed in Hart’s Guide to New York City (1964) by Harold H. Hart. New York City has also been called a “jazz capital.” “Big Apple” is a New York City nickname that has been popular with jazz musicians since the 1930s.
Big Apple Jazz Tours was started in 1997 by Gordon Polatnick.
Big Apple Jazz Tours
We started in 1997 as a guide service specializing in the music scenes of New York City. We are the recognized leader in introducing visitors, businesses, and student groups to the world capital of jazz. From Harlem’s history and hidden jazz haunts to the nation’s greatest clubs in the Village and Midtown Manhattan – We not only show you where it’s at, we introduce you to all the cats!
“This tour, hosted by New York jazz expert Gordon Polatnick, is the real deal for jazz buffs.”
