The Miles Jay Manhattan Jazz Café and Lounge opened their doors to patrons last week to a crowd of family, friends and neighbors with a generous serving of food, music and old fashioned southern hospitality with a jazzy New York touch.
MJMJC is the dream come true of Jazz musician Miles Jaye. The noted artist had several hits on the R&B charts int he late 1980s ad early 1990s, the biggest of which was “Let’s Start Love Over” in 1987. He was for a time the lead singer of the Village People.
Jaye recently took a year off from touring and recording to attend Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Orlando to better appreciate the essential principles of great food.
The club located at 2111 University Blvd, is open during the weekday and on the weekend where Miles will be heard playing his plethora of instruments for a New York Jazz experience! “We want to exemplify a standard of excellence from the food and drink, to the atmosphere and entertainment and most importantly, the hospitality. Our cafe is a labor of love of jazz music and the combined vision and expertise of our staff,” said Miles. Shown is Miles with MJMJC café staff members Chef Keisha Matthews, Michael Gooding, Dean LeBlanc, Chef Jaz Moore, Linda McNair-Price, Linda Perry-Platte, Aanisia DeVine, Limona Wright and Shawn McGee.
