Indiana Avenue was traditionally the host to some of America's premier, world-renown entertainment icons in various genres. Along this winding, brightly lit thoroughfare were nightclubs, lounges, supper clubs, taverns, juke joints, and holes-in-the-wall that celebrated the best of the best in entertainment that America had to offer, from the 1920s on into the 1970s. On the bandstand at Denver Ferguson's Sunset Terrace Ballroom, the elegantly attired crooner Nat King Cole, in a sparkling blue silk suit, delivered his signature song "Mona Lisa." Nearby, B.B. King sang his 1973 down-home blues classic "To Know You is to Love You." At Tuffy Mitchell's Pink Poodle nightclub, "Moms" Mabley made the audience roar with laughter during her sidesplitting comedy routine. Indiana Avenue truly was the place to be for the best in entertainment.

New Orleans wasn't the only place famous for creating jazz musicians. David Leander Williams, author of Indianapolis Jazz, is back with another trip down Indiana Avenue. This time he's going further back in time and talking about the entire musical history of the musical heart of Indianapolis. Big names like Scott Joplin and "Guitar Pete" Franklin make appearances at places like the Murat Temple and the Walker Theatre. Dick Clark's American Bandstand gets teenagers dancing and promotes integration while Thurston Harris sings chart-topper "Little Bitty Pretty One." Motown and Stax Records get rhythm and blues into the ears of the nation. Though Indianapolis is called "Nap Town," the history of Indiana Avenue is anything but boring. Indiana Avenue was the center of Indianapolis's black culture when segregation was still a social norm. The clubs in the district offered fiery jazz and somber blues, experimenting with new sounds that would take over the radios. Now a historical section of Indianapolis, Williams chronicles its past in Indianapolis Entertainment History.
