Historical Jazz Club, Lenox Lounge, to Shutdown.

The series of sad news in jazz keeps coming; the Lenox Lounge, a historical jazz club frequented by many greats including Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Billie Holiday and more, will be shutting down after 73 years in business. This New York bar in Harlem was a monument to the city's culture.

It has also been featured in several movies, including American Gangster and Shaft.

It's always sad to see historical music landmarks being shutdown due to high costs.

Here's a live jazz video from the Lenox Lounge:
