When:
May 10, 2018, 7 p.m.

Jazz is so much more than music. It’s history. It’s culture. It’s drama, full of eccentric personalities. Once a month, led by KMHD's Mark Montesano, this group will listen to some of the best and most influential jazz ever recorded, beginning with the blues and ragtime through the radical forms of the '50s and '60s. You will also learn about and be encouraged to read books on jazz history, biographies of musicians and the cultural history of jazz. This ongoing class, called Jazzed About Jazz, will meet the second Thursday of each month from 7-8:30 pm at Mother Foucault's Bookshop.  

Mark Montesano, the host of Hard Choices every Saturday morning on KMHD, previously taught jazz history at Arizona State University’s Honors College.
