Let’s Listen to… Jazz?

6:30 PM, Montclair Public Library & Foundation
Apr 7 2017

April is Jazz Appreciation Month. Perfect time to open the grand can of worms: What is jazz? From Coltrane to Kenny G, there are many answers, many more questions. And a remarkable breadth and depth of music.

Hard Bop, bebop and post-bop, fusion, free, Third Stream, swing…Series curator Peter Bodge will guide us from A to Z – Louis Armstrong to John Zorn – with a wildly eclectic playlist, historical insights, and the question: What do you think jazz is?

Join us to listen to and learn about jazz in its many facets, and meet other people who want to do the same. As always, we’ll have a healthy take-home list of recommended recordings and readings.

The Let’s Listen series. First Friday every month, new theme every session. Refreshments served.
