    Charlie Parker Jazz Festival SCREENING: BEACONS OF JAZZ Filmed by Jon Hammond member of local Musicians Union 802 NYC

     

    http://www.cityparksfoundation.org/calendar/screening-beacons-of-jazz/ Beginning in 1986, The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music has annually recognized jazz musicians and others who have “significantly contributed to the evolution of American music culture” with the Beacons in Jazz award. Recipients include Milt Hinton, Dizzy Gillespie, Clark Terry, Joe Williams, Benny Carter, Max Roach, Chico Hamilton, and George and Joyce Wein. These gala events were attended by many musical luminaries and special guests, and prominently featured memorable performances by jazz legends. In 1990, Cab Calloway was the recipient of the Beacons Award, and the evening’s festivities were filmed for posterity. Hosted by Bill Cosby, Donald Byrd and Milt Hinton were also present and captured live in performance. Now, for the first time ever, the footage from this historic concert will finally be screened. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to view this fascinating piece of jazz history. Filmed by Jon Hammond, member of local Musicians Union 802, NYC FREE . Seating is first-come, first-served.
