MONDAY MARCH 5th, 7pm
Join host Hank O’Neal (The Jazz Gallery Chairman, Record Producer, Renown Photographer) and curator Dan Morgenstern, the Dean of American jazz scholar/critics, NEA Jazz Master and multiple Grammy Award winner at Hank’s downtown loft for an evening of listening & discussion, and wine & cheese.
Dan’s Dilemma is that he had heard almost everything on records that matters for seventy-five years, often at the actually recording sessions – so choosing records of importance is no mean feat! However, he has picked about 15 recordings from roughly the 1920’s to the 1980’s, that he first heard on vinyl, and which he feels were significant then and remain so today.
