Jazzed About Jazz with Mark Montesano
August 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Our popular monthly series with KMHD DJ Mark Montesano happens Thursday August 9, at 7pm.
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.
