Jazz with Jim
From Louis Armstrong to Robert Glasper, this series teaches what to listen for, recognizing defining stylistic characteristics, while simultaneously placing the amazing music within its social and historical context. Jim tackles this vast territory through four lenses: Notable Big Bands; Notable Voices, Notable Instrumentalists, and Composers and Fusion.
This lecture series is part of the Within/Earshot Jazz Festival presented by BIMA in partnership with the Earshot Jazz Festival.

I look forward to doing the same with you here as we explore the eclectic array of composers, performing artists, and genre specific recordings comprising the wonderful art of Jazz.
