Prohibition and the Jazz Age

Date: 
Monday, December 16, 2013 - 6:00pm

 
"The parties were bigger…the pace was faster…and the morals were looser" (F. Scott Fitzgerald).  Prohibition was intended to stifle vice - but instead, it nourished crime and the clubs that would become a hot bed for jazz.  Ken Burns joins Wendell Pierce to bring us the sound of the speakeasies in the work of
Beiderbecke, Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton and James P. Johnson. Songs like Snake Dance, New Orleans Bump, and Variety Stomp will doubtless provoke merrymaking on par with the era of bathtub gin and backroom carousing.  Special guests Doug Wamble and Vince Giordano join the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.  Wendell Pierce hosts.
