Jazzed about Jazz – June 2018

June 14 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pm

Our popular monthly series is back! KMHD DJ Mark Montesano joins us Thursday June 14, at 7pm* to discuss your common obsession: Jazz.

Jazz is so much more than music. It’s history. It’s culture. It’s drama, full of eccentric personalities. Once a month, this group will listen to some of the best and most influential jazz ever recorded, beginning with the blues and ragtime through the radical forms of the 50’s and 60’s. You will also learn about and be encouraged to read books on jazz history, biographies of musicians and the cultural history of jazz. This group will meet the second Thursday of each month from 7-8:30 pm

Mark Montesano is the host of KMHD jazz radio’s Saturday morning show, “Hard Choices”. He also taught a class on jazz history at Arizona State University’s Honors College before retiring.

*Stay tuned right after this month’s talk for Big Hug Publishing’s WINDOWCAT Issue 1 reading!
