BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)– With a plethora of information on how Buffalo was an epicenter of Black musical influence, the Colored Musicians Club is making sure that history is told even during the pandemic.

“The musicians that came out of Buffalo were very very respected on a national scene, and many of the legendary jazz artists like Duke Ellington, Lena Horne, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, came through Buffalo and more importantly this building,” said George Scott, board member and former president of the CMC.
