Live at Red Rooster Harlem

When award-winning celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson made plans to open his restaurant Red Rooster on Lenox and 125th, he envisioned a place where guests could hear live music by both well-known local talent and world-renowned voices. Live at Red Rooster Harlem brings you soulful sounds by the 11-piece, genre-crossing Rakiem Walker Project, jazz tunes by Nate Lucas, and powerful gospel hymns by Vy Higginsen's Sing Harlem Choir. The album also includes beautiful poetry by David Ellis. Each track immerses you in the rich culture of this storied neighborhood.

"...Though food is at the center of Red Rooster, it’s about so much more than that to me. It’s become a key part of our vibrant Harlem community, encouraging new friendships and conversations over thoughtfully prepared food"
