Jazz Haven and the Institute Library present Happy Hour Jazz at the Institute Library.
February 14, 2020, 5:30 to 7:00 pm or so. Since this is also Valentines Day, we will listen to some from the Institute’s extensive collection of Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Ella FitzGerald and Peggy Lee. And, since 2020 is the hundredth anniversary of both the recorded history of jazz (well, thereabouts, which is good enough for…..), we must include some of Anita O’Day who was born in 1920.
February 28, 2020, 5:30 to 7:00 pm we will listen to a couple of early LPs of Andy Narell, who put steel pans on the music scene back in the seventies, and took them truly internationally several years later.
