Jazz And The Art Of War says
What does war sound like? As people, how are we unwittingly seduced into supporting ideas at the end of a barrel of a gun (or in the precise target of a drone?) How can jazz act as an honest broker, and as spiritual reinforcement for counter-expression?

We will explore jazz during war years - from World War I to Vietnam and beyond. What does this music reveal, and what does it conceal? How are we lured into avoidance, and how are we encouraged to stand our ground, and not stand idly by?

From Irving Berlin to John Coltrane - from Glenn Miller to Herbie Hancock, we join together in an inspiring evening of conversation and superlative, swinging music-making.
