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.
Norman Woods, once chose to be recognized and performed as N-Side, the blessed one. He felt that the name represented his appreciation for being able to express his internal struggles and various stages of his triumphs. Later on, he chose to be called N-Side and The Tribe, acknowledging appreciation of his band, He refers to his style as “Soul dialog”. Covering a variety of subjects, soul dialog is what takes place when you are engaged in meaningful conversation. These are the types of conversations, where each individual can feel as though they can contribute and participate.
N-Side's poetic work is done in a traditional style, which reflects his love of poetry from the "Harlem Renaissance" era. Most of his poetry is influenced by the writing of Langston Hughes, James Weldon Johnson, Arna Bontemps, Countee Cullen and so on. His contemporary jazz influences include, but are not limited to, Red Garland, Donald Byrd, Gil Scott-Heron, Sekou Sundiata and his favorite poet, Kamau Da'aood.
Join Zaiyah and Uptown for a conversation and listening party with the brilliant and talented Mr. Norman N-side Woods.
