Wynton Marsalis sitting in with Philly Joe Jones Quartet
@ Jazz Forum, 1982 Wow! I’d heard about this “bootleg” film clip but had never seen it until this week. Enjoy an albeit poor-quality near-forty-year-old capture of some of the “magic” that happened much of the time at the second Jazz Forum loft/club, 648 Broadway at Bleecker St. (5th Floor). Here’s part of an amazing 1982 1am set when Wynton Marsalis, then 21 sat in with the Philly Joe Jones Quartet featuring Charles Davis, Walter Davis, Jr. & Larry Ridley. – Mark Morganelli
For families who are at home with kids, Jitterbugs is here for you! This week we are excited to announce Jitterbugs @ Home to keep your children musically busy.
We Are Bringing Jitterbugs to Your Living Room via Zoom!
Jitterbugs is going online! We are happy to present Jitterbugs @ Home, an interactive jazz class presented virtually via Zoom for families with kids ages 2-7! Jitterbugs @ Home will be hosted by our educators Juan and Jody who will lead the children through interactive music games. Your children will get to know Jazz through storytelling, music and playing.
For safety reasons, we’ll only provide the live video link and password to people signed up for the class.
