7.06 Jazz at Lincoln Center Listening Party “Not Just Music for Drinkers & Dancers – Pt. 2 of 2”

Thursday, July 6, 2017 (7:00pm)
Jazz Academy Listening Party: Not Just Music for Drinkers & Dancers

WHO: Evan Christopher
WHERE: The Irene Diamond Education Center (IDEC) Time Warner Building, 5th Floor, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Broadway at 60th St., New York, New York.
WHEN: JULY 6, 2017 at 7pm

Jazz at Lincoln Center hosts a free Listening Party on Wednesday, July 5 & 6 at 7PM in the Agnes Varis and Karl Leichtman Recording Studio (Time Warner Bldg, 5th Floor, Broadway at 60th St., New York, NY). The program “Not Just Music for Drinkers & Dancers” will be presented by Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Education Department over two consecutive evenings.

Clarinetist Evan Christopher has been an advocate for the traditional music of New Orleans and early jazz for most of his career. In this intensive two day workshop, history, guided listening and insights about what makes this music potent, artistic and culturally relevant help participants develop their critical listening skills of traditional New Orleans music & early jazz.

Despite the music’s commercial trappings over its century-long practice and humble beginnings, participants will gain a better understanding of the craft from the musicians’ perspectives and develop deeper listening skills to encourage confidence in their aesthetic value judgments.

This event is an exciting part of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s free Listening Party series, which can be found online at
The Irene Diamond Education Center (IDEC) is located on the 5th Floor of the Time Warner Center, 60th Street and Broadway.
