CONVERSATIONS ABOUT JAZZ Explores Music Of Iconic Album 'The Young Lions' August 6

Join Conversations about Jazz & Other Distractions hosted by former jazz radio host and founder of Notorious Jazz, Carl Anthony. Every other Thursday, Carl takes audiences on a unique journey through the world of jazz music with artist talks, workshops, and listening sessions.

On August 6 Conversations about Jazz revisits the iconic album, The Young Lions, recorded in 1960 and featuring incredibly talented - yet largely unknown at the time - musicians including Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, and Bobby Timmons. For this program, Carl will be joined by trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Eric Reed and trumpeter Marcus Printup. They will discuss their journey in jazz, beginning with the moment Wynton Marsalis recruited them as young men to perform in the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. It was through this relationship that they also became Young Lions.

This program is for the jazz novice and jazz head alike. It's FREE, but you must register. To register click HERE.
