Introducing Jazz Forum @ Home

March 19th • Edition #1

Dear Jazz Forum Community,

Today we are excited to launch Jazz Forum @ Home, your virtual Jazz Forum experience! Every Thursday while we are closed, we will share Jazz and Brazilian videos, archival photos, interviews and more.

Enjoy our content and PLEASE SHARE YOURS! Email your stories, videos, photos and ideas for more content to info@jazzforumarts.org. Your participation will enrich the sense of community and make this more fun! As the international language of understanding and harmony, music calms and delights us.

We hope Jazz Forum @ Home will make this tough time easier to endure. We look forward to seeing you all as soon as the restrictions are lifted and we can resume our weekend shows.

Stay well, be careful and all best from all of us at Jazz Forum Arts!

Meet the Artist: Gary Smulyan

I tell all my students, “You think you’re going on a straight path and then your phone rings and you make a left turn, and you go a completely different way in your life. You have to be open to try things, and you never know what’s going to happen.”
– Gary Smulyan

Thelonious Monk: The Life and Times of an American Original

…a massive and impressive undertaking… Thoroughly researched, meticulously footnoted, and beautifully crafted, Thelonious Monk presents the most complete, most revealing portrait ever assembled of the man known as the high priest of bebop.”
– Steve Greenlee, The Boston Globe
