Food's Connection to Jazz

Fried Chicken, recipes below
Guest blogger Aaron Irmas 

After reading Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man  and viewing “Appetite City: Soul Food,” I was very intrigued by southern food's connection to Jazz culture - how restaurants, such as Tillies, would locate themselves near jazz clubs because they knew that people would flock to them after visiting a jazz club. I found Professor Opie's blog post on the subject and was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Tillies? Was its fate directly related to the dwindling popularity of jazz clubs in Harlem?
