All-new Jazz Stories: Jazz + The Movies!

These two art forms exploded in tandem. And the flicks we love are jammed with jazz. Come explore with Cayce Carnahan (trumpet), Teerth Gonzalez (drums), Richard Leiter (keys, vocals, stories) and Special Guest Star, Andy Dudnick on sax as we run it down from from Harry Arlen to Henry Mancini, to Spike Lee's dad.

This is going to be a WAY above average Jazz Stories, so come early - and introduce your friends and family to this amazing night we all share once a month. 

Pegasus Books presents the increasingly popular series Jazz Stories!

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.
