U Arts & Blue Note Records Present: What Is Jazz?
The University of The Arts & Blue Note Records Present:
What is Jazz? @ Jolly's
A monthly concert series that mixes and matches styles, sounds and players while begging the question....what is jazz? the answer, of course, is the question as THIS generation of jazz musicians try to avoid the public pronouncements that "jazz is dead" and demonstrate that America's art form is, today, more vital than ever.
The series will include films (electric miles, monk in oslo, mingus triumph of the underdog); an educational component (short talks with the university of the arts faculty), decorations (including blown up classic blue note album covers) and more - the overall vibe of the night will be to create an intimate enviornment that is "special" - and there will be lots of give aways, surprises, special treats and of course great music: all shows are ALL AGES - $5.00 cover. start at 8pm and run til midnight.
