JAZZ JOURNEY featuring JANET LAWSON with Mark Morganelli & The Jazz Forum All-Stars
In 1994, Grammy-Nominated vocalist Janet Lawson developed, with pianist Lenore Raphael, a program called JAZZ JOURNEY, and through the New Jersey Jazz Society produced a video with Clark Terry, Arnie Lawrence, Ray Drummond and Billy Drummond called “JAZZ and YOUth.” The interactive history of jazz follows the journey of the people taken from their homeland and sold into slavery. Janet exposes this story’s history, sociology, and geography, as well as the ethical values of society, giving students an opportunity to connect to the story by vocally improvising their own melodies and rhythms to the different styles of music from the “journey.” The children begin the “journey” in W. Africa, mimicking animals and the sounds of nature, creating POLYRHYTHMS; moving to the Caribbean, singing SYNCOPATED RHYTHMS; proceeding to the Deep South of the United States, expressing their feelings in the BLUES; to a New Orleans ROMP, imitating tubas, trombones, trumpets and clarinets; and ending up in the big cities of the North, improvising the sounds of BEBOP and SCAT. Over the years, she has brought JAZZ JOURNEY through Artist in Residency programs to children in schools in the Poconos and throughout the US, Canada, Denmark, and Latvia.
Janet will collaborate with Jazz Forum Arts Executive Director, Mark Morganelli (Trumpet/Flugelhorn), Vic Juris (Guitar), Cameron Brown (Bass) & Tony Jefferson (Drums & Vocals.) Jazz Journey 2013, funded by JFA Board Member Debra DelToro Phillips, with additional support from each School District, Rotary, BOCES and Schools Foundations, will begin with One Day Residencies in Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, Irvington & Tarrytown Elementary Schools. If you’re interested in Jazz Journey in your school district, please contact Mark Morganelli 914-631-1000 orjazzforumarts@yahoo.com.
