Back in 2017, at our wall2wall Jazz Festival we celebrated the 100th anniversary of 1917 – an extraordinary year in the history of jazz, when the very first jazz recording was made and released.
In addition, jazz giants Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk were born and the 20th Century journey through the iconic story of Jazz and it’s influences began to be charted.
Our evening of celebration was narrated by Jazz journalist Nigel Jarrett, who told anecdotes about the key jazz characters and music styles through the century. His narrative was fascinating and well researched and as a result Black Mountain Jazz Club decided to create a series of pop up posters charting these key stages to adorn our stage and represent our club.
You may have noticed that these pop ups appear in their variety behind our musicians on stage and we have invited pop up author and Jazz Journalist Nigel Jarrett to describe and discuss their content in conversation with BBC Radio Jazz journalist John Hellings.
This interesting discussion is hosted by Black Mountain Jazz Club organiser and jazz vocalist Debs Hancock.
The programme is presented in three parts over successive evenings – the one ticket gives access to all modules.
Full of anecdotes and interesting analysis this three-part discussion is not to be missed.
