CONCERTS AND EVENTS
Jazz at Lincoln Center presents "Prohibition and The Jazz Age"
Prohibition was intended to stifle vice – but instead, it nourished clubs run by organized crime and created a hot bed for jazz – where “The parties were bigger…the pace was faster…and the morals were looser” (F. Scott Fitzgerald). Ken Burns joins host Wendell Pierce to bring us the sound of the speakeasies. Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton and James P. Johnson are on the menu as Doug Wamble and Vince Giordano join the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Wendell Pierce hosts.
Jazz at Lincoln Center airs every Tuesday at 6pm on KUVO/KVJZ.
