Jazz Forum: Bennie Moten
September 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm CDT
Omaha Jitterbugs Jazz Forum: A series of monthly conversations on the history surrounding the music legends of the American swing era.
“Professor” Dan Wondra, a living encyclopedia of early jazz, will be playing some music recordings, talking about what we’re hearing and filling in context about what came before and after, as well as sharing colorful anecdotes about the players.
Join us for our first Jazz Forum. This month, it’s Bennie Moten, the leader of the Blue Devils, a band which included so many infuential figures, and would later become the Count Basie Orchestra.
Cost: $5 (included in Jitterbugs’ subscription).
Jazz Forum plus Jitterbugs’ Night Out: $10
