Let's Listen to...

2017-03-04 09.20.10.jpg

The Let's Listen series explores jazz in its many facets through free listening sessions at the Montclair Public Library. Third Friday of the month. Our resident jazz historian, Peter Bodge, curates a themed playlist, and together we listen to and talk about the music. Great way to discover new sounds, learn about the music and its history, meet people who want to do the same. Beyond his deep-cut curatorial skills, Peter is a jazz drummer, an accomplished visual artist--his jazz portraits hang in the Smithsonian Institution--and an arts educator of more than 40 years.
