JJA Hosts Jazz & Politics Panel

The Jazz Journalists Association’s New York chapter is sponsoring a “Jazz Matters” panel discussion, which will commence with the topic “Music and Politics = Oil and Water,” to investigate whether or not music reflects politics and political decisions, changes people’s opinions and if all music is political.

The panel will consist of renowned Fugs poet Tuli Kupferberg, tenor saxophonist Dennis Mitcheltree, Sue Mingus, writer and JazzTimes columnist Nate Chinen and, as a press release for the event puts it, “some conservatively-oriented, if we can find any.” Those interested in volunteering can contact [email protected] for more information.
