NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study presents "I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues: A Hot Jazz Symposium".
Tuesday, March 11, 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre
1 Washington Place
Hot Jazz is experiencing a modern revival. And this renaissance of sorts is at its strongest in our very own New York City, where the music's youthful energy with a modern twist has established a grassroots and markedly social way of engaging with music– a far cry from NYC's formal and austere jazz institutions.
Henry Topper is proud to bring this new Hot Jazz into the academy for the first time, presenting a lovely, foot-stompingly fun evening of live music and talks from figures at the forefront of the revival including professor Michael Dinwiddie and jazz critic Will Friedwald and a performance by the Hot Sardines.
Hot Jazz is free and open to the public. Please RSVP.
