The public is invited to attend the month of June edition of A Taste of Jazz series as we explore The Influences for Jazz. This fun, informal event features both wine samplings and insights into how the Afro Cuban music and culture influenced jazz.  Join Martin Hand and the trio as they explore the culture and rhythms of the music of Cuba, Brazil and beyond and its’ intersection with jazz from the 1940s and forward.

“A Taste of Jazz is a fun way to learn more about the celebrated musical genre without feeling intimidated or overwhelmed,” said Jody Leshinsky, Cultural Venues Programming Manager. “So many people want to learn more about this original American art form but do not know where to begin. We created this event series for them! And by adding wine tastings from local vendors, it will truly become a fun-filled social event.”

Every month, A Taste of Jazz will feature entertaining and educational encounters with the musical genre, accompanied by wine tastings. The introduction to jazz series, which began in March,  will showcase the talented musicians of the Gold Coast Jazz Society Band, under the direction of Martin Hand.
