SYNCHRONICITY

nqouvxmmlurrvumnAmazingly, JazzWax blogger Marc Myers and I will both be delivering jazz historic lectures on next Tuesday, April 30.

Mr. Myers will read from his book Why Jazz Happened at the State University of New York, and I will talk about Lester Young, “The President of the Tenor Saxophone” & Artie Shaw, “The King of Clarinet”, in the chamber music hall at the Cologne Music College.

I will play their recordings, and will also compare their lives and careers which have much more in common than one might guess in the first place.

The topic of my lecture is entitled:

JAZZ BETWEEN AD SEG AND HOLLYWOOD
LESTER YOUNG & ARTIE SHAW – From Swing To Bop

I wish both of us full houses and responsive audiences.

Good luck!Artie_Shaw
