Music put Harlem on the map. Artists such as Sarah Vaughn, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Charlie Parker, Lena Horne, Larry (Lucky) Luci, Dinah Washington, Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Charles, Nina Simone, Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Fats Waller, Eubie Blake & Louis Armstrong filled the air of Harlem with jazz, ragtime and blues throughout the carefree nights of the 1920's. White patrons - everyone from gangsters to socialites - flocked to Harlem, crowding famous venues like Connie's Inn, The Cotton Club and the block long Savoy Ballroom, along with speakeasies, sporting houses and all manner of after-hours joints.
