Get A Taste of (and FOR) Jazz at Pompano Beach's Bailey Contemporary Arts in March, April & May

JAZZ Returns to Pompano Beach!
Join your jazz friends for a new kind of combo! A Taste of Jazz at Bailey Contemporary Arts will feature entertaining and educational encounters with the musical genre, accompanied by wine tastings. The introduction to jazz series will showcase the musicians of the Gold Coast Jazz Society Band, under the direction of Martin Hand.  The sessions will take place from 7-9 pm on March 7, April 4 and May 2, 2019.  Tickets $10-$20 per event. For more information

“A Taste of Jazz is a fun way to learn more about the celebrated musical genre without feeling intimidated or overwhelmed,” said Jody Leshinsky, Cultural Venues Programming Manager. “So many people want to learn more about this original American art form but do not know where to begin. We created this event series for them! And by adding wine tastings from local vendors, it will truly become a fun-filled social event.”

The Gold Coast Jazz Society has been a major presenter of jazz concerts, jazz education and jazz outreach programs in Broward County since 1992. They have maintained and preserved the heritage of jazz by presenting the music celebrating jazz's evolution over the past 100 years.   
Session Topics:

March 7, 2019
What’s This Thing Called Jazz?  - A jazz trio (guitar/vocals, bass and drums) will introduce you to the musical form called jazz.  There is no better example of democracy than listening to a jazz ensemble.  You will hear how an ensemble adheres to the overall framework and structure of a song yet provides their own spin on the music through improvisation.   
April 4, 2019 
Where in the World is Jazz? – Where did jazz originate and how did it get to what it is today?  Join Martin Hand and the trio as they explore the origins of the music of jazz, how it moved throughout America and became the music it is today.     
May 2, 2019 
Jazz Forward -   Hear samples of how jazz is evolving and connecting with other forms of music.  Martin and the musicians of the Gold Coast Jazz Society Band will give you peek into the future of jazz.
