Jazz: The Revolution of Beat


May 2 | Galapagos Art Space | NYC

With Jayne Cortez, Gary Giddins, Bill Zavatsky, and special guests; moderated by composer Carman Moore

Combining sounds of popular music with those of the street and the bayous, jazz changed not only music, but other art forms which borrowed its phrasing, rhythm, structure and aesthetics. Four American writers, including legendary jazz critic Gary Giddins, American poet Bill Zavatsky, and guests explore the birth and life so far of jazz and how it relates to the written word. And, of course, there will be musical accompaniment by the Diane Moser Trio.

Cosponsored by The MacDowell Colony and Galapagos Art Space
