From Discovering Your Inner Scientist to Publicizing Your Book

Date: 
Sunday, June 7, 2015 - 9:00pm
Program: 

Tonight on Inquiry we talk with CHAD ORZEL , a professor at Union College ,Schenectady, New York. His new book is EUREKA! DISCOVERING YOUR INNER SCIENTIST. Professor Orzel believes everyone is a scientist and in fact the ability to do science is what makes us human. We use the process of science in our everyday life, it’s that we just don’t realize it. Tune in tonight and find out what collecting stamps, the Iron Chef, yard sales and “Where’s Waldo” have to do with the process of science.

Akua Dixon at the Central Brooklyn Jazz Festival

Date: 
Monday, June 8, 2015 - 6:00pm

It's not as if there were ever clear paths for cello players beyond the European classical tradition, but Akua Dixon made one for herself. The New York City native found work in the pit band of the Apollo Theater, the multi-racial Symphony of the New World, and the bands of many jazz musicians — including drummer Max Roach's Double Quartet. As she developed her jazz chops, she also started her own string quartet, featured prominently on her new self-titled album. Akua Dixon also features her crafty arranging for strings over jazz standards and Afro-Latin grooves.

Our Point of View

Date: 
Monday, June 1, 2015 - 6:00pm

Our Point of View is a leaderless supergroup of Blue Note artists assembled for the labels 75th anniversary. The group consists of: Lionel Loueke, guitar and vocals; Marcus Strickland, tenor sax; Ambrose Akinmusire, trumpet; Robert Glasper, piano; Derrick Hodge, bass; and Kendrick Scott, drums. We’ll hear stories from each artist and Blue Note president Don Was about how Blue Note impacted their lives. This concert is the fourth performance of Our Point of View, and was captured in New York at Le Poisson Rouge.
