About The Event
Dr. Michael White is a widely regarded clarinetist, bandleader, composer, historian and educator that plays classic New Orleans jazz in the George Lewis style, and has served as guest director for several Jazz at Lincoln Center concerts.
On his musical philosophy, he shares; “I try to teach to my students that one of the values of listening to jazz, especially New Orleans jazz, is not just for the danceable nature and the great music that it is, but also for the lessons it teaches that can be used today; that you have to improvise.”
This evening he presents the 7-piece Original Liberty Jazz Band!
Sets at 4:00pm and 5:45pm.
As always, Nickel-A-Dance is FREE of charge, All Ages, and family friendly.
There is a bar and kitchen available, but no one is pressured to drink.
Dancing Shoes Suggested!
