  • America's Classical Music Jazz

    in Music

     In Washington, D.C., we are fortunate to have several performing musicians that are internationally known and they direct Jazz programs at Universities in the area.  This evening, I will interview Allyn Johnson who is the director of The University of the District of Columbia Jazz Studies Program.  In addition, we will listen to tunes from his recent release, The Light That Grew Among Us. He is a native Washingtonian with many talents.  Not only does he play the piano, he is an educator, composer, arranger and producer.  He is one of the most sought after musicians in the jazz community.  As a result, he divides his time between two cities, appearing at the Blue Note, Village Vanguard, and Birdland in New York, and Blues Alley and Bohemian Caverns in his home town.  Join us this evening at Jazz Notes where jazz lives!

    America's Classical Music Jazz

    in Music

         Join me this evening when I interview Cedric Hendricks and William Brower regarding the bill H.R. 1682, the National Jazz Preservation, Education and Promulgation Act of 2015.  The bill will preserve knowledge and promote education about jazz in the United States and abroad.  Cedric Hendricks is an attorney based in Washington, DC. For over the past thirty-two years, Cedric R. Hendricks has worked closely with Congressman John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) on Jazz-related legislative and policy initiatives.  Among his accomplishments with Mr. Conyers has been the development and passage in 1987 of House Concurrent Resolution 57, which designated Jazz as a rare and valuable national American treasure.  This was followed in 1989 by the passage of legislation designating May 25th, the birthday of Bill Bojangles Robinson, as National Tap Dance Day.  In 1991, they successfully secured federal funding to establish the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, which is now over 20 years old and has performed around the world.  Most recently, he worked with Mr. Conyers on the development and introduction of a new bill for jazz, HR 1682, the National Jazz Preservation, Education and Promulgation Act of 2015.  William Brower resides in Washington, D.C.  In his 45-year career, Bill Brower has been a community organizer, a jazz journalist and oral historian, and a jazz and special event producer. He is currently a Founding and Senior partner of JBV Production, LLC. A major JBV client is the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation. In that capacity Mr. Brower has served as Producer of the CBCF Annual Legislative Conference Jazz Issue Forum and Concert. He has also worked with the Office of Rep. John Conyers on various legislative initiatives, including H. Con. Res. 57 and HR 1682.  Keeping jazz alive on Jazz Notes.
