This announcement is very last-minute, but if youre in the NYC area and dont have any plans tonight, come hear me give a talk at Rutgers-Newarks Institute of Jazz Studies on my Masters thesis research. The title of the talk is White and Blue: Alternate Takes on Jack Teagarden and will give a broad overview of my attempt to understand Teagardens music and its place in American (and global) society.
The details: tonight, April 21, at 7:00 PM, at the Institute of Jazz Studies (4th floor Dana library, map here)
I hope to see you there! If not, Ill get a recording and would be happy to share it with any interested parties.
