Conversation: Doug Beach and John Corbett

Sunday, February 4, 2018

Join us for an insightful conversation with Doug Beach (Director of Jazz Studies, Jazz Band and Arranging at Elmhurst College) and John Corbett (writer, producer, curator, and gallery owner), about the intersections of art and jazz during Gertrude Abercrombie's life. In addition to hosting a vibrant jazz salon in her home, Abercrombie became friends with musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, and Sonny Rollins. She was also the subject of the song "Gertrude's Bounce" by Richie Powell.
