Jazz Forum Arts Executive Director Mark Morganelli hopes that the group’s popular summer jazz concerts can go on as planned by shifting their timeline. The usual July/August concerts will now take place in August and September, and 10-foot chalk circles will encourage distancing. So will the removal of an intermission. “I’ve separately contacted each of our five partner venues with a suggested plan. Part of it includes shortening the concerts to one hour with no intermission to discourage grouping.”
For 82 days straight, a diverse group of musicians found their way to a stoop in Flatbush, and everybody followed the sax player. (It was his house.)
41 Years Ago! The first Jazz Forum loft/club opened at 50 Cooper Square, NYC on the 3rd floor between an Alcohol Program and a Methadone Clinic, across from Cooper Union, next to Carl Fischer Music and just behind Joe Papp’s Public Theater. Mitchell Seidel captured these cherished musical moments provided by Clifford Jordan, Barry Harris and Cedar Walton. Good Times!
