Morgan Scott Trio

Appearing the first Friday of each month at The Java Room, the trio consists of Morgan Scott on piano, Sven Larson on bass and Ed Conley on drums, percussion. “We create adventurous music of the moment...”spontaneous composition” at times and traditional jazz standards at others. Sometimes a quick burst of an idea comes across one of our minds’ ear, and if we are free of ourselves we let that idea emerge. The rest of the group will react to the idea, or the idea presented exists as a counterpoint to whatever is already going on in the music.

Jeff Forshaw & Daniel Bor

Date: 
Sunday, February 24, 2013 - 9:00pm
Program: 

The concepts of quantum physics seem to fly in the face of everything we know about how the universe is supposed to work. Particles behave like waves. A particle can be anywhere in the universe at a later time. A particle traveling from Point A to Point B does not move in a straight line but along all possible paths. And that is just for starters. Yet this is the way the universe really works and quantum physics can predict the fate of a star or explain why a laser works. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with JEFF FORSHAW, Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Manchester.

Court Carney & Alex Stone

Date: 
Sunday, February 17, 2013 - 9:00pm

Jazz was born in New Orleans but rapidly traveled to Chicago, New York City and eventually to Los Angeles, changing its form and style along the way. The history of early jazz is a complex story of culture, race, and the changing technologies that allowed jazz to be heard by larger and larger audiences. Tune in tonight when we speak with COURT CARNEY, Assistant Professor of History at Stephen F. Austin University, about wonderful new musical history CUTTIN’ UP: HOW EARLY JAZZ GOT AMERICA’S EAR.

Wheeler Winston Dixon & Jenny M. Jones

Sunday, February 10, 2013 - 9:00pm
Program: 

In the 1930s and 40s the great Hollywood studios were ruled by a small group of men who had complete control over which films got made and what stars got to appear in those films. These moguls rule was absolute and together they had a feeling of “absolute immortality.” They were the real gods of Hollywood. But after they died, the era of the classic Hollywood studio also came to an end and the studios lost their individual identities.
