NEW YORK (AP) — It's all about jazz at the Children's Museum of Manhattan.

The institution has teamed up with the National Jazz Museum in Harlem for an interactive exhibition.

Its focus includes jazz legends Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and Bill "Bojangles" Robinson. Billie Holiday and Mary Lou Williams also are featured.

The multimedia show explores the rich history of jazz during the Harlem Renaissance.

It includes music and dance stations, live performances, films and original artifacts and instruments.
