Jazz at Lincoln Center hosts a free Listening Party on Wednesday, December 7 & 8 at 7PM in the Agnes Varis and Karl Leichtman Recording Studio (Time Warner Bldg, 5th Floor, Broadway at 60th St., New York, NY). My program will be presented by Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Education Department over two consecutive evenings.
Historians have well-considered how the musical cultural life of New Orleans formed the ideal environment for the evolution of jazz. But, few musicians have attempted to elaborate on how the city’s soundscape created the jazz aesthetic. My goal is to demonstrate how the broad range of activities and opportunities for musicians black, white, and Creole influenced the way clarinetists approached their instrument and how the distinct sound of the clarinet and stylistic elements in traditional New Orleans music evolved. This two day “Listening Party” combines guided listening with an open masterclass format. So, musicians and non-musicians alike are invited and clarinetists are encouraged to bring their instrument!
This event is an exciting part of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s free Listening Party series, which can be found online at http://academy.jazz.org/
The Irene Diamond Education Center (IDEC) is located on the 5th Floor of the Time Warner Center, 60th Street and Broadway.
