Branford Marsalis in Conversation with Sam Stephenson

A public conversation between saxophonist Branford Marsalis and JLP director Sam Stephenson has been confirmed for the evening of February 10, 2011 at Hayti Heritage Center in Durham, N.C. in association with the Center for Documentary Studies and the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University (the JLP show opens at Nasher on February 3).   As a starting point Marsalis and Stephenson will discuss “Jazz Then and Now,” the music and culture of jazz in the era of JLP circa 1960 and the differences and similarities today.  But the conversation promises to quickly venture beyond predicated, predictable topics.

The precise starting time of the event will be announced soon.  Check back here and/or the JLP site’s news section for details.
