The Hot Club Jazz ft. Bix BeiderbeckeThursday, April 8, 2021 @ 8:15 P.M. - 9:30 P.M.
The Hot Club Jazz listening sessions share jazz on 78rpm records – the oldest and rarest records that capture truly high quality sound and make the beauty of class jazz recordings available to all.
It’s like a book club for jazz heads.
Taught by jazz historian, pianist, and 78-collector Tom Roberts and held on zoom.
This month features Bix Beiderbecke. The young man with a horn.
Bix opened up a new world of emotional complexity coupled with a lyricism that influenced everyone from Lester Young to Miles Davis. Bix was the first jazz musician to gain inspiration from modern European classical composers live Ravel, Debussy, and Stravinsky, and to incorporate their innovations within his own work.
A consummate improviser, Bix never repeated himself.
