Potomac River Jazz Club - Celebrating 50 Years!

The PRJC Educational Discussion Mapping the Cradle of Jazz
Presented by John McCusker
     Rescheduled: Wednesday, Dec 8, 2021, 7-8:15pm, ONLINE via Zoom

McCusker   Please join the PRJC for our second educational event with John McCusker, with a visual presentation of the landmarks of the pioneers of jazz, including King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, and Kid Ory.

John McCusker has documented the people and places that gave New Orleans one of its many nicknames - The Cradle of Jazz - throughout his career. He started offering the Cradle of Jazz tour in the 1990s, combining a jazz lover's appreciation of the art and a journalist's devotion to the facts. In addition to being an award-winning photojournalist, John has written two books. "Creole Trombone: Kid Ory and the early Years of Jazz" (2012), and "Jockomo: The Native Roots of Mardi Gras Indians" with Shane Lief (2019).

Join the PRJC in a presentation by John McCusker on Wednesday, November 17, at 7:00 p.m.
