Tell us what jazz means to you and enter to win a pair of tickets to a concert in the new SFJAZZ Center!
Our new home, scheduled to open January 2013, will be the first freestanding building in the western United States designed for jazz performance and education. It will also be a crossroads for conversations about the art form. Help shape those conversations now at Are You Listening?
Today we’re posting five new videos with figures from across culture, all sharing their thoughts on the music:
CHRIS TUCKER: actor & NAACP/SFJAZZ Humanitarian Award Honoree
JASON MORAN: pianist & SFJAZZ Center Resident Artistic Director
SOLEDAD O’BRIEN: broadcast journalist, host of CNN’s Starting Point
JACK CONTE: songwiter, producer &multi-instrumentalist
DAVE HOLLAND: Grammy-award winning bassist & composer
These videos are just a starting point — we want to know what the music means to you! Every week, we’ll select one submission to the Are You Listening? website to receive a pair of complimentary tickets to concert during the inaugural season of the SFJAZZ Center.
As of today, areyoulistening.me also has a new look and greater ability to explore the perspectives that hundreds of music fans have contributed through the site so far. And don’t miss interviews with McCoy Tyner, Robert Glasper, Savion Glover, Rebeca Mauleón, Mary Stallings, and Meklit Hadero as well.
Thank you for being part of our community, we look forward to seeing where you take the conversation.
