On Friday at 8 PM, the Yale Undergraduate Jazz Collective and WORD (a spoken word group at Yale) will be premiering our first-ever concert together! Four poets teamed up with musical teams to create collaborative works that lean into the jazz and spoken word traditions—traditions that have often intersected within their own trajectories. There will also be interesting visuals accompanying each poem.
More information is available at the Facebook event: https://fb.me/e/NmoKTtgA. The event will be streaming from Facebook and YouTube. We hope to see you there in the comments!
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
