Jazz Audiences

The other day, I came across a fascinating article from the NPR blog entitled ”It Can’t Be Done’: Growing Jazz Audiences.’ The title made me sad at first, but I read the article anyway, which was full of insightful ideas. I didn’t get on board with everything he suggested, but still found the article very worth thinking about. The (almost) parting words from author Kurt Ellenberger;

‘Jazz as a creative force is not going away. In fact, I would go so far to stay that it will never go away because of the depth of its materials, its rich history and canon, and its openness to new influences.’

We agree with this idea, Kurt. Dance-style. Want more? Read the full article here.

Keep Groovin’!
