This Week’s Question: 

What Jazz tune makes you feel most at home and why?

Let us know if you would like to remain anonymous.


Last Week’s Question: What was the most memorable Jazz show you have seen and what made it so special? 

Sharon & Dean
“The Forest Hills Jazz Festival, held on September 17, 1988, was special due to the amount of talent at one venue. The pre-concert performers were: Noel Pointer, Lonnie Liston Smith, Jon Hendricks & Co, and Roseanne Vitro. The headliners were: Stan Getz, Grover Washington Jr, Chuck Mangione, Gato Barbieri, Freddie Hubbard, and Angela Bofill. I remember the day was rainy, but that did not dampen the spirits of the audience or performers. What a great show for only $22.50! Unfortunately, some of these musicians are no longer with us, but will live on in their music.”

Meet the Artist: Al Foster
Interview by Salina LeBris

Miles would say, “Don’t worry about the changes, worry about the drums.” – Al Foster


To Be, or Not … to Bop
By Dizzy Gillespie & Al Foster

“Just recently finished reading this great tome by Dizzy, as told to Al Fraser. Wish I’d read it while Diz was still here so I could have asked him about some of these experiences directly.”Mark Morganelli, Executive Director, Jazz Forum Arts


As many of you have children or grandchildren and are looking for activities to do at home, we wanted to bring Jitterbugs: Jazz for Kids, our new kids program, to you at home as well! Here are a few ideas to keep yourself and the children musically busy.

Color the instruments!

Print this page of instruments to draw at home. Maybe it’ll spark a conversation about which is their favorite instrument, and why!

We tested the print-out on 2 1/2 year old Astrid, daughter of Isak Edblad, Jazz Forum Arts’ Digital Marketing Specialist. We can proudly confirm that it’s Astrid-approved!



Shake, shake, shake it!
Why not take it one step further: Build your own instruments! Watch this video with your kids and then do it yourself – guaranteed to make your whole family swing. Maybe try to shake your new instrument along to the tunes off Jazz Forum’s Mark Morganelli!

If you can buy a gift certificate or donate to Jazz Forum Arts, we would be very grateful. It will help ensure that we will reopen confidently when the restrictions are lifted. Thank you.
