Jazz Stories: Jazz and Pop! Re-meet the Beatles, Motown and Taylor Swift!

To kick off 2018...an all new Jazz Stories: "Jazz and Pop! Re-meet the Beatles, Motown and Taylor Swift!" This is going to be big fun, folks. With Super Special Guest Stars, the amazing Vince Littleton on drums and the rocking James Harman on guitar (what else?). Plus, the legendary Cayce Carnahan on trumpet and Richard Leiter on keys/vocals/stories. We're re-imagining your faves in wonderful ways. Snacks? Yes! SRO? Yes! (Come early.) Free? Always!!

People love hearing jazz...and hearing about it. Musicians like Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and Buddy Rich were original, colorful characters artists who said and did astonishing things. Fortunately their colleagues cared enough to document these moments in stories and pictures and we now have a rich repository of photos and anecdotes about these artists, and about the American songwriters and composers who created the raw material of jazz. 

Jazz Stories is a performance of the songs of jazz from its most creative periods intensified with illuminating, funny and touching true stories of the time.

Come hear music and jazz stories you probably have never heard...but will never forget. Hosted by Richard Leiter.
