Jack Wilkins: Solo Jazz Guitar Seminar
What comes to your mind when you think of “Jazz”?
Do you picture somebody in a black suit playing saxophone in a smoky underground club?
Or do you maybe fantasize about the Manhattan skyline by night?
Obviously, there are MANY meanings and connotations to the word “Jazz.”
For decades, music historians, fans, and critics have debated about the origin and the meaning of this word. We are not claiming to have an ultimate answer to this, but we can point to at least ONE undeniable truth. There is definitely ONE UNWRITTEN LAW when it comes to the term “Jazz.”
Are you ready for it?
From nostalgic memories of Big Bands playing on Broadway in the 1930’s, or black and white pictures showcasing soldiers dancing swing before boarding ships for world war II, to Miles Davis playing legendary concerts at Carnegie Hall…
Jazz and New York, it’s just an inseparable bond, period.
Now, what if YOU could experience and be mentored by someone who has been part of that history for nearly 50 years? Somebody who is not only a native New Yorker but also has been around Jazz for decades.
Taga Publishing is proud to present to you New York’s legend JACK WILKINS.
