Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW) - The Colored Musician's Club on Broadway in Buffalo is making the music of Jazz past, come to life again at their Jazz Museum.

"Anybody who is anybody in Jazz played here. We have been here constantly since 1935. We've been open and our doors have never closed. We wanted to preserve the jazz legacy in here in Buffalo," Curator Danny Williams said.

This museum has been in the making for eleven years. Now, Curator Danny Williams and others are opening the exhibit to the public, in hopes to bring the gift of music to the east side community and beyond.

"Buffalo has a rich legacy in the art form known as Jazz and we wanted to showcase what Buffalo actually brought to the table nationally and internationally," Williams said.

The museum features many local artists, showing young local musicians that anything is possible. Williams said music could help children in more ways than one.

"You will find kids that learned to play and read music do better in math and science," Williams said.

There are interactive activities for children and adults alike to enjoy. They can even see the real deal. Williams said there are some up and coming musicians on the jazz scene right here in the Queen City.

"There are a lot of young stars still here and playing here," Williams said.

Williams said everybody young and old can come to the museum to hear soulful sounds that are part of the city's past, present and future.
