The University of Idaho Library is continuing its series of jazz film and discussion evenings this fall, in the library instruction room (Room 212A on the 2nd floor of the library). The first film, scheduled to be shown on Wednesday September 12, is "Celebrating Bird: The Triumph of Charlie Parker". "Lady Day: the Many Faces of Billie Holiday" will be aired on Wednesday October 4, and the final film, "A Night in Havana: Dizzy Gillespie in Cuba", will be shown on Wednesday October 24.
This series, which began in the spring with films on New Orleans, the Jazz Age and the swing era,provides an opportunity to learn and ask questions in a relaxed, convivial setting, with refreshments and conversation with a jazz expert. This fall our jazz scholars will be Vern and Vanessa Sielert from the Lionel Hampton School of Music.
The programs all start at 7pm, and are free and open to the public.
