Beginning in the 1880's, African American singers and musicians performing in Monmouth County brought to life the sounds of spirituals, jazz, gospel, doo wop, rhythm & blues and soul. In addition, venues in the county played important roles in the careers of dozens of internationally known Black music stars- Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Claude Thornton, Sonny Greer and more.
