Charlton Singleton – Jazz Talks Lecture Series
October 22, 2018 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
The Jazz Talks lecture series invites Lowcountry jazz educators and musicians to the Charleston Gaillard Center for bi-annual lectures open to all community members at no charge.
Charlton Singelton, our Artist-in-Residence, addresses that old jazz history cliché – that it originated in New Orleans, traveled up the river to Chicago, then to New York and over to Kansas City, and finally made its way out to Los Angeles — is at best, a simplistic explanation. The Charleston Jazz Initiative has shown that this great American music has roots in many other places too – Charleston included.
