A Non-Threatening Conversation About Jazz

May 18, 2021

Who's afraid of the Bix bad Beiderbecke?

Hartford has an amazing jazz history, and Colin has a lot of jazz musician friends. This hour, a little onstage jazz party recorded in front of a live audience long before the pandemic put a pause on live audiences as a thing.

Colin and the panel look to make jazz accessible to mere mortals. They talk about what makes jazz jazz, invite the audience to sing, and teach the audience to scat.

GUESTS:

  • Steve Davis - Trombone
  • Atla DeChamplain - Vocals
  • Matt DeChamplain - Piano
  • Henry Lugo - Bass
  • Jocelyn Pleasant - Drums
