The Music of JAZZ

Dec. 3 show-

The Music of JAZZ was a sequel to the recent show-Music Heard ‘Round the World on the LET’S TRAVEL Radio! show, a production of NYTalkRadio.com. Guests were all
major in their fields. These included Dr. Dave Schroeder, Director, Jazz & Contemporary Studies, Steinhardt School, New York University/ www.education.nyu.edu/ music.jazz,
Robin Bell-Stevens, President & CEO, JAZZ MOBILE/ www.jazzmobile.org and Todd Barkan, Programming Director, DIZZY’S Club-CocaCola/JAZZ at Lincoln Center/ www.tbarkan@jalc.org

Heavy emphasis was on American jazz from the end of the Second World War to the present. Starting off with jazz trumpeter Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong
the first composition played on the LET’S TRAVEL Radio show
( Thurs.,12-1 PM/ EST, and again on Sat., 6-7 PM/ EST on WWW.letstravelradio.com ) was from his “All-Time Greatest Hits” album titled “What A Wonderful World.” The music honored his giant contributions to American music in the second half of the twentieth century. Reference was made to “POPS,” a new book published recently on “Satchmo” under the Houghton-Mifflin label.

Robin Bell-Stevens from JAZZ MOBILE informed us that they’ve gone global with a large intinerary planned for 2010. Expect to see JAZZ MOBILE in all five boroughs of New York City next year and in all four seasons of the new year. And like Dr. Schroeder’s curriculum at NYU this non-for-profit company fosters music education in the city schools or wherever there’s an opportunity to impart music education. They promote and foster jazz music as a social as well as a career component.

Todd Barkan, the Programming Director at DIZZY’S Club Coca-Cola has been making jazz over his 45 year career as a producer and teacher. At the Lincoln Center complex he has been able to invite
today’s leading jazz artists from both the U.S. and abroad. His venue is an international one. And as he tells it, jazz is the universal language attracting the finest musicians to create and foster their craft for the benefit of anyone who appreciate good music,and to every walk of life. Todd is strong on the future of jazz.
His club is a mecca for the best in jazz twelve months a-year. he asserted.

The music track from the Miles Davis “Kind Of Blue” album paid tribute to Miles’s 50th anniversary as a consumate musician and composer,

The rap here was that jazz is what’s happening wherever you go. In the arts, literature, and wherever people get together. It’s the fabric of our lives.
