I definitely would. Carl and Ana are very supportive of the artist, Harlem features Artists every month and we have a Jazz bands twice a week.  If you are an artist this is the place for you. You always want to surround yourself with people with the same vision. Carl is always encouraging to keep pushing and work hard.
