Join me for a talk on the history of jazz at the Carter G. Woodson Museum in St. Petersburg tonight
As part of the Carter G. Woodson Museum's series of lectures in honor of Jazz Appreciation Month, I've agreed to host their last one, at 7 tonight, on the evolution of jazz through the 1960s and the creation of fusion jazz.
It's all centered on the last two episodes of Ken Burns' amazing Jazz documentary series, which we'll screen portions of and talk about.
The Woodson has had some great local players stop by to share their thoughts -- as a journalist, I expect to ask as many questions, as anything.
But I hope we'll have a really interesting dialog about the past, present and future of a great American music art form which doesn't get much attention anymore.
Hoping you care enough to stop by and join us.
