Let’s Listen to… the Blues

6:30 PM, Montclair Public Library & Foundation
Feb 3, 2017

Join Seed Artists and our resident jazz historian, Peter Bodge, for our first monthly listening session in a series exploring jazz in its many facets. We start at the roots, from African tribal music through early American blues.

We’ll listen to and learn about great music, and hang out with other people who want to do the same. You’ll walk away with the playlist from the session, recommendations for further listening, and a list of suggested reads on the subject.

Peter, our Let’s Listen curator, is a Walking Jazz Encyclopedia, a musician, an accomplished visual artist, and an arts educator of more than 40 years. His jazz portraits hang in the Smithsonian Institution. At Cambridge College in Massachusetts, he teaches jazz history, art history, critical thinking, and a course that helps educators discover their own creativity and use it in the classroom.

First Fridays every month. New theme every session. Refreshments.
