Journey of Jazz
Trace the stylistic journey of jazz from its origins to the present day in a musical performance by the Hanah Jon Taylor Quintet, interwoven with a dramatic presentation of the music's history by master jazz musician and educator Hanah Jon Taylor. Hanah Jon Taylor is a preeminent saxophonist and flutist and has been a leading catalyst, organizer and arts educator throughout his 30-year career. Taylor currently serves as lead instructor for "Live Soundz on Saturday," a jazz education program partnership between the Greater Madison Jazz Consortium and the Goodman Community Center.
Jazz at the Library celebrates Jazz Appreciation Month with a series of musical and literary performances in Dane County Libraries in April and May. Jazz at the Library is funded through grants from Beyond the Page, the National Endowment for the Humanities, Madison Community Foundation, and Dane Arts, with additional support from the Greater Madison Jazz Consortium and Madison Public Library.
