The Jazz Series -- Don't know your Bebop from your Boogie Woogie? Eastham Public Library presents a six-week music series showcasing America's unique contribution to the world of music, Jazz: Its Roots & Branches: Understanding America's Music, every Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. from April 6 through May 11. The story of jazz is that of a constantly shifting synthesis of European conventions and African traditions continually creating new sounds and new sensibilities. The series begins on April 6 with a concert by the renowned jazz band of Nauset Regional High School and then continues on April 13 with the first of five performances by exceptional musicians who are experts in their musical styles and will talk us through what makes the Blues the Blues or propels the beat in Latin jazz, all the way from Ragtime to Fusion with that eminently danceable Swing in between. All of the events are free and open to the public and generously sponsored by Friends of the Eastham Library.
