The National Jazz Museum in Harlem Presents

 

Jazz For Curious Listeners Special Event 

 

A  Musical, Literary Evening with Author James McBride and his Band Featuring Gospel Spirituals Inspired by the Great Abolitionist John Brown

 

Tuesday, September 24

7:00-8:30 PM

MIST Harlem @ 46 West 116th Street

 

 

 

 

 

An essential voice on the literary landscape, James McBride’s work has illuminated complex issues of race and identity in striking ways. Author of the New York Times bestselling memoir, The Color of Water, McBride will join us for an evening celebrating his highly anticipated new novel The Good Lord Bird. Hailed as a “brilliant romp of a novel” the novel follows the story of a young boy who joins John Brown’s antislavery crusade by passing as a girl. This evening will feature a discussion with McBride peppered with performances of spiritual, stomping, swinging music inspired by the great John Brown. The band includes McBride on tenor saxophone, Keith Robinson on guitar, Showtime Brooks on drums, Adam Faulk on piano and Trevor Extor on bass. The event is bound to be fascinating and we hope you’ll grab a copy of the book and see us there! Books will be available for purchase thanks to La Casa Azul Bookstore.

 

“McBride- with the same flair for historical mining, musicality of voice and outside characterization that made his memoir, “The Color of Water,” an instant classic- pulls off his portrait masterfully, like a modern-day Mark Twain: evoking sheer glee with every page.”

The New York Times August 15,2013
