Jazz Research Roundtable with Sean Singer

April 18, 2016

The Jazz Research Roundtable is a semi-monthly discussion of jazz help by the Institute of Jazz Studies. The events are free and open to the public.

The Institute of Jazz Studies welcomes Sean Singer to the jazz roundtable for a discussion of “One Step Beyond: Grachan Moncur III and Newark’s Jazz Culture”

Date: Wednesday, April 20, 2016
Time: 7:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m.
Location: Dana Library, Institute of Jazz Studies

The trombonist Grachan Moncur III, since his first recordings for Blue Note in 1963, has been synonymous with Newark’s jazz culture. Yet he’s become undervalued and even unknown as a jazz artist. By paying attention to the music he created, we can understand how he was informed by Newark, and how Newark might be informed by him. Moncur’s family was important to Newark’s African American community. His father was a Swing Era bass player, and his parents’ home on High Street was frequently filled with their friends, the elite of Newark’s African American cultural figures. Moncur’s unique sensibilities refocus the beauty of Newark’s culture in contrast to perceptions of its social and political problems.

Sean Singer is poet and creative writer. His books include Honey & Smoke, Discography, Passport, and Keep Right on Playing Through the Mirror Over the Water. He is the recipient of a Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. He was the first person to receive a Ph.D. in American Studies from Rutgers-Newark.

The roundtable runs from 7-9 PM in the Dana Room, John Cotton Dana Library, 4th floor, Rutgers University-Newark.
