In my most recent post about Jazz St. Louis' various educational efforts, I neglected to mention that JSL will also be offering their "Jazz 101" program again this year. "Jazz 101" is an introduction to jazz aimed at adults who'd like to better understand the music, and is presented as a series of musical demonstrations and discussions.
JSL director of education Phil Dunlap and his band the Legacy Jazz Quintet will present this season's first "Jazz 101" program, "Understanding Swing," at 8:30 p.m. this Thursday, September 18 at Jazz at the Bistro. The cost is $10 per person; for more details, see this post on Dunlap's blog or call 314-289-3040.
