The Humanities Institute at Stony Brook will be presenting a major jazz conference and festival from April 3-5, 2008. Brilliant Corners: Jazz and Its Cultures will explore the music's connections to the other arts and will feature many of the world's most prominent jazz scholars. Twenty-five speakers will be addressing the many ways in which the music of jazz intersects with currents in art, literature, film, theater, and politics. Rounding out the event will be performances by pianist Vijay Iyer, trombonist Ray Anderson, and tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano on the three conference evenings as well as an exhibition of jazz paintings and photographs that will run from April 1st to May 9th. The conference is free to Stony Brook faculty, staff, and students, but registration is required. For the general public April 3rd is free, and April 4th and 5th are $25 a day or $40 for both days.
