Centennial. One hundred years.

The year 1917 was a big one for jazz. First recording, by the Original Dixieland Jass Band. And the birth of three giants of the music: Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, and Thelonious Monk.

For May’s listening session, join series curator Peter Bodge to listen to and learn about three of his favorites. Meet fellow fans of the music, and take home a list of recommended recordings and reads.

The Let’s Listen series explores jazz in its many facets. First Friday every month, new theme every session. Refreshments served.
