Come re-meet the Beatles, Motown, and Taylor Swift! We're re-imagining your faves in wonderful ways. What makes a pop tune great...and what makes it jazz? With Super Special Guest Stars: the amazing David Rokeach on drums and the dazzling John Hoy on guitar. Plus, the irresistible Lincoln Adler on tenor sax and Richard Leiter on keys/vocals/stories. (Reminder: Free, but be sure to register.)

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
