This tour traces the long and wild history of jazz in Los Angeles. From Jelly Roll Morton to La-La Land, the City of Angels has housed many of the world's most-recognized jazz artists, including Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, Eric Dolphy, Charlie Parker, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and hundreds more. Under the veneer of redevelopment and new coats of paint, the nightspots and haunts of jazz's past can still be found if you know where to look. On this tour, we'll see the theater where Dexter Gordon workshopped his Blue Note debut and the tiny brick-lined coffeehouse where Ornette Coleman honed his craft before heading east. We'll see Capitol Records Tower, the house that Nat King Cole built, looming large over an array of notable jazz stars embedded in the city's sidewalk. While many significant sites no longer exist, the history remains, and vibrates when accompanied by an extensive slideshow and authentic playlist!
Other things to note
Hollywood is not always as glamorous as the movies will have you believe. It can be a dangerous and occasionally hostile environment. I recommend not wearing anything that might attract unwanted attention and refraining from giving anyone on the street anything.

Hi. I'm Sean, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

I've been consumed by a love of jazz since I was a teenager catching sets by legends like Ray Brown and Elvin Jones. I was a student of Billy Higgins and Gerald Wilson while at UCLA and have traveled the world covering jazz festivals for publications such as DownBeat magazine, Playboy magazine and the Los Angeles Times. In 2014, my photographic history of Los Angeles's Central Avenue jazz scene was published by Images of America press, culled from interviews with musicians who jammed with Charlie Parker and sat at the feet of famous LA residents Art Tatum and Jelly Roll Morton. For several years I was also the jazz correspondent for the KPCC public radio's "Off-Ramp" program talking with the likes of Big Jay McNeely and Dizzy Gillespie's presidential campaign manager, Ramona Crowell.

This tour is fantastic! Sean is warm, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. We loved getting to walk around the streets we’ve driven down multiple times to learn about the history of the area as it pertains to jazz and much more, as well as discovering hidden gems and marveling at the small details you can’t see while driving. So much knowledge and fun packed into 90 minutes, and you get some exercise in too! We especially liked that he played music along the way to highlight the musicians’ and buildings’ stories. Highly recommended!

It was such a great experience! He seemed to have deep knowledge of Jazz, and looked professional. I certainly recommend this tour for everyone!

I’ve been around Hollywood before and appreciate some of the historic architecture and sights, but there were so many things I’ve seen but never really noticed before. Sean was able to point interesting and unique buildings out and describe the events that were there and what transpired in the years previous. The tour was filled with lots of historical insight - Hollywood is always changing, so Sean came prepared to show us what Hollywood looked like during the days of Jazz lore. Sean had lots of knowledge about the artists, buildings, architecture, and we even paused along some of the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to discuss their significance. We’ve lived here for ten years and were grateful for this opportunity!

My own connection with jazz music was really taken into consideration and I felt that Sean truly tailored the tour so I could get the most out of it. He had knowledge of the LA Jazz scene that I didn't know about and I knew a LOT already. He pointed out a lot of unknown points of interest, as well as shared stories about jazz history that I was familiar with. I would definitely take this tour again - and would love an addition of the Capital Records building tour, if possible.

Sean is a great guide for understanding the history of jazz in Hollywood. He is very knowledgeable about jazz and has researched the neighborhood deeply. He has a very effective way of delivering his material, complete with examples of the relevant music from the artists and venues he is talking about.

Enjoyed the tour. Saw some sites where clubs and people hung out that I had only heard of.
