The event creator says
Beyond the old duck and cover drills of the Cold War, how do we cope with the constant threat of existential disaster? How does our music reflect our hopes and our anxieties? How do we distinguish between the treacle of intoxicating propaganda and the ineffable wonder that transforms our soul? What truly, conquers our fears?

We will focus on the music of mid-century America, highlighting the work of Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Charles Mingus, Louis Armstrong, and Duke Ellington.

As part of the popular Views and Brews Jazz series, sponsored by KUT radio, you are invited to the historic Cactus Cafe (2247 Guadalupe St.), on Tuesday, 9 February @ 7:00, for an evening of robust conversation and spectacular music, featuring Rabbi Neil Blumofe in conversation with Rebecca McInroy and Ephraim Owens, trumpet; Michael Malone, saxophone; Andre Hayward, trombone; Sean Giddings, piano; Sam Pankey, bass; Scott Laningham, drums.

All are welcome -- do arrive early to get a seat (doors at 6:30).
