June 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Authors Bill Dal Cerro and David Anthony Witter will present their book, Bebop, Swing and Bella Musica: Jazz and the Italian American Experience. Italian Americans such as Frank Sinatra, Louis Prima, Louie Bellson, Lennie Tristano, Tony Bennett, Buddy DeFranco, Flip Phillips and Joe Lovano, and many others have enriched the jazz genre since its inception in New Orleans though the big band, swing, bebop, and into the modern era. This book features interviews with musicians and illustrates the prejudices and stereotypes which Italians faced in pursuit of the American Dream.
