HOW JAZZ DOES HIP HOP

  • BASEMEANT WRX 124 Walnut Street Montclair, NJ, 07042 United States

Ditch the winter blahs with a Sunday afternoon of inspired sights and sounds:

HEAR tenorman JAMES BRANDON LEWIS’s kinetic, head-nodding exploration of 90s hip hop and its roots. His trio with Luke Stewart (b) and Warren Crudup III (d) melts rooms. This is how jazz does hip hop.

SEE artist PETER BODGE‘s stunning linoleum-block jazz prints. His works hang in the Smithsonian. You, too, can have an original Bodge.

HEAR reed phenom ANTHONY ORJI make the bass clarinet sing. The Jazz House Kids/Juilliard alum will open the music.

SEE a debut trailer from Montclair filmmaker JOEL KATZ, creator of the acclaimed documentaries Strange Fruit and White: A Study in Color.

The MC, a new Montclair media platform, will record the event for its inaugural podcast.

And we’ll have an art activity for the kids, and free wine, beer, juice and finger foods.

Proceeds help to fund Seed Artists children’s programming.
