The fruitful relationship of jazz and “The Big Apple” stands as one of the foremost examples of a musical style benefiting from, and in turn helping to define, a supportive home. The first half of this event is a multimedia survey by Ashley Kahn of representative New York City jazz venues, from the 1920s through the 2000s; the second half is a panel discussion asking what is it about New York City and jazz that accounts for their lasting relationship, with a more contemporary focus on forums of free-flowing musical exchange and financial support for the music’s creators.

With: Legendary jazz impresario George Wein; veteran Jazz at Lincoln Center producer Billy Bank; and Jazz Standard creative director Seth Abramson

Moderator: Ashley Kahn
