4 Wednesdays, April 7-28 | 10am

Greetings, fellow music-lovers! This class will be the most fun you can have on a Wednesday morning at 10am on Zoom! We'll be examining the lives, careers, and music of a slew of great Jewish-American jazz legends. Some of these will most likely already be familiar to you. Some, hopefully won't. Topics covered include: Benny Goodman and the genesis of the Swing Era, clarinetist Artie Shaw (Arthur Arshawsky) and black stride pianist Willie "The Lion" Smith, saxophonist Stan Getz (Stanley Gayetsky) and drummer Mel Lewis (Melvin Sokoloff), vibraphonist Terry Gibbs (Julius Gubenko) and more!


  • Starting Wednesday, April 7th, 2021, repeats every week on Wednesday until Wednesday, April 28, 2021 @ 10:00 am
