Price: $20

Yiddish, Scat & American Popular Song

 

Before the labels - jazz, blues, swing, pop, Broadway - there was simply popular music. American popular song has been influenced by more than its fair share of cultural interchange and one the most fascinating of these “marriages” evolved between Black and Jewish populations.  The musical relationship between these two cultures is the basis for many of the great standards we have today. Learn how these seemingly disparate cultures melded to create one of the most highly praised art forms in jazz. In this program, vocalist and historian Amanda King traces the cross-cultural influences between Black and Jewish music and musicians, and explores a repertoire that reveals how American popular music is truly a cultural ‘melting pot’.

Forgotten Women, Lost Songs

The contributions and heroics of women jazz artists often go unnoticed, and for this program, vocalist and historian Amanda King will share the extraordinary work of two leading mid-20th century musicians: trumpeter, singer and actress Valaida Snow and bandleader, singer and composer Blanche Calloway. Snow was a multi-instrumentalist but chose the trumpet as her focus, becoming heralded as “Little Louis” after the great Satchmo himself. Calloway – older sibling to Cab Calloway – was the first black female bandleader to direct an all-male ensemble and proved to be quite a prolific composer, having a principal role in penning the hit “Minnie the Moocher.”
