Join us for a relaxed afternoon of music, mirth and memories as we salute Zoot Sims, Al Cohn and all of the amazing musicians who frequented the jazz lofts in New York City in the fifties and sixties, particularly the infamous digs at 821 Sixth Avenue where W. Eugene Smith made his incredible photographs and historic tape recordings. This festive celebration will also officially welcome the Zoot Sims special collection to ESU, where the legacies of Al and Zoot are being reunited within the Al Cohn Memorial Jazz Collection.
