Thursday September 17th: Chaman & Don Quishepp: An Original History of Jazz

 This Thursday, Franck Hercent will present his latest book DON QUISHEPP while including passages (in French) from his other books including CHAMAN, Elvin Jones from A to ZZ, Photocktail and Jazz In Marsalis and conclude with an extract from his film in progress FREE.

DON QUISHEPP is the history of jazz as it has never been told. Through the tutelary voices of Archie Shepp and John Coltrane, we will be immersed in the America of the 60s and 70s for an interstellar journey in the galaxy of music and where poets windmills turn to the breath of saxophones. This is a Jazz writing which serves the modern era and with it's universality it can become a perfect Swing Ballad.

Book dedications and orders for manuscripts will be available at the end of the presentation.

A Note from the President

"Change is inevitable. Growth is optional."
~ John Maxwell

Dear Members,

It has been a while since you've seen a note from me here. As you are aware, these are indeed extraordinary times we are living...everywhere.

Covid-19 has brought inevitable change and I for one hope growth will not be optional. I hope that as individuals and communities both local & global we are up to finding better ways of living and supporting each other.
