Joanie Harmon, Music Section member, was invited
by Zorana Ercegovac, Chair, to give a talk on one of
Joanie's favorite topics: WEST COAST JAZZ.
We heard about its beginnings, main actors, places,
heard several clips from various albums, discussed differences between the West Coast Jazz and Chicago
or New Orleans Jazz, and enjoyed great Music in America.
We were also delighted to have Mireya Lund with us, who
always asks great questions. Native from Chile, Mireya
brings experiences from the Latin Jazz, and more.
Another member was Tara Brown who joined us as well.
