CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE AT THE JAZZ MUSEUM IN HARLEM TUESDAY, INTERVIEWS TOMMY LiPUMA THURSDAY
Posted on 1/24/2011at 11:47 AM
The National Jazz Museum In Harlem presents the final installment of its four-part series, "Christian McBride Hosts: My Musical Heroes" tomorrow night at 7pm. Christian's topic will be "The 'Jazz' Singers of Motown." Tomorrow’s program will shed light on some music usually not included in a jazz context. As quiet as it’s kept, many of the instrumentalists and vocalists central to the Motown Sound were immersed in the jazz idiom. Among the many obscure Motown jazz recordings you'll hear will be those of Marvin Gaye. If you like to expand your horizons, please join us.
On Thursday at 6:30pm, join Christian for HARLEM SPEAKS as he interviews one of the music industry’s most innovative and uniquely creative forces for more than four decades, the legendary, three-time GRAMMY® award winning producer, Tommy LiPuma. With 29 gold and platinum records to his credit, more than 30 GRAMMY® nominations, and three GRAMMY® Awards, he is one of the most successful pop and jazz producers ever. LiPuma will share stories about the many legendary artists he's worked with through the years such as Dinah Washington, Barbara Streisand, Natalie Cole, Miles Davis, George Benson, Al Jarreau, Diana Krall and many, many more.
This will be an evening not to be missed!
The National Jazz Museum in Harlem is located at 104 E. 126th Street. (Between Park Ave & Lexington Ave) For more info, call 212-348-8300 or click:
