4 Classes – Summer Semester

Listening to Jazz

Wednesday   7:00pm  July 7 – July 28, 2021
60-75 minutes

Jazz, Music History | Adult, Precollege

Join Brian Jones and special guests for an illuminating conversation on jazz. For each class, Jones has asked a colleague in the music industry to choose six jazz recordings that they have found particularly meaningful. During the class, we will listen to the tracks, deconstruct the merits of the tunes, identify the unique characteristics of the musicians that made them, and break down the contextual circumstances under which they were recorded. Most importantly, we will find out why these pieces of music were significant to each guest’s musical and personal experience. The special guests are: pianist Daniel Clarke, drummer Charlie Hall, saxophonist/trumpeter Marcus Tenney, and pianist Marlysse Rose.

Adults: $50/subscription; $15/individual class
