If you want to enhance your understanding of jazz or get inside the head of a jazz musician, this interactive concert is the place to do it. Starting with a well-known standard such as “Autumn Leaves” or “Take the A Train,” SJW’s founder Jim Nadel will lead an ensemble of top notch players in a tour of different jazz styles including swing, Latin and hard bop, analyzing the arrangements and highlighting the differences in approach. The inner workings of how jazz is constructed will be revealed from the artist’s perspective, as the musicians interact and respond to each other while commentary is provided in real time. Questions are encouraged in this lively and education-oriented format, designed to add value to the listening experience and facilitate a deeper enjoyment of this rich and complex musical form.
