The Harrison Public Library has partnered with world-renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center to feature special viewings of live performances from New York City.  A new performance will be shown each month. Jazz Ambassador Takeshi Asai, Jazz Pianist, Composer and Producer, will provide a brief description about the music being performed before each concert. 

A grand decade when "the parties were bigger, the pace was faster, the buildings were higher, the morals looser," jazz defined the Roaring Twenties—a time also known as the Jazz Age. 100 years after the first known jazz recording, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis transports audiences to the wild and sophisticated 1920s.

Led by master saxophonist and veteran JLCO member Victor Goines, the Orchestra will showcase the hot jazz of New Orleans, the sweet sounds of 1920s dance bands, and demonstrate how the integration of the two led to the Swing Era of the 1930s. This concert will feature essential compositions by artists including Duke Ellington, Fletcher Henderson, and Jelly Roll Morton.
