As one of New York’s signature artistic fields, can jazz continue to thrive with its small yet passionate following? How is jazz distributed in a world without record stores, commercial jazz radio, or reviews beyond jazz magazines? Participants include Jason Moran, pianist, composer, and artistic advisor for jazz at the Kennedy Center; Jana Herzen, musician and founder of the Grammy Award-nominated, Harlem-based Motema Music record label; and Mary Schmidt Campbell, dean of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Moderated by music critic and author Gary Giddins, of the Graduate Center’s Leon Levy Center for Biography.
