Her real name was Kathleen Annie Pannonica Rothschild de Koenigswarter, but she was better know to the jazz musicians and artists of New York City as the legendary Nica, the “jazz baroness”. This amazing woman abandoned a life of the rich and famous, to become a friend and patron to jazz musicians like Charlie Parker, Thelonius Monk and Art Blakey. Tune in tonight, when Inquiry welcomes music historian and educator DAVID KASTIN who talks about his amazing new history and biography NICA’S DREAM: THE LIFE AND LEGEND OF THE JAZZ BARONESS.
