Coleman Hawkins

Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 6:00pm

Jazz Rhythm looks at the life of Coleman Hawkins, who was one of the first prominent tenor saxophone players. Hawkins was a prime influence of several notable sax players, including Lester Young, John Coltrane, and Sonny Rollins. Mostly associated with big band and swing era jazz, Hawkins led several bebop and beat Jazz bands, and was the bandleader on what is considered the first bebop recording of all time, a 1941 session with Dizzy Gillespie and Max Roach in 1944.

From illuminations To pseudonyms

Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 9:00pm

Tonight on Inquiry we have a lively discussion with visual artists LISA BARTHELSON, ROSE LEBEAU and CARRIE CRANE. They are three of the four artists featured in the exhibition ILLUMINATIONS at the Krikorian Gallery at the Worcester Center for Crafts. (The fourth artist Nina Fletcher was unable to be here for the interview). Each artist has interpreted the idea of “illuminations” differently and each is showing new work.
