On Wednesday, March 23rd from 6-8pm on the 5th floor of the New School, our 
next Jazz Matters will be "The Art of the Interview" 

We're very excited about this particular Jazz Matters and the panelists: 

Butch Morris: Lawrence D. "Butch" Morris is one of the leading innovators in 
the confluence of jazz, new music, improvisation and contemporary classical 
music. Mr. Morris's work redefines the roles of composer, conductor, arranger 
and performer, and bridges the gap between the composer, the improviser and the 
classically oriented musician. 

Lourdes Delgado: Born in Spain, Since 1999, she makes her living as a 
freelance photographer. She have contributed photos to the albums of many jazz 
musicians, including Chick Corea, Kenny Barron, Greg Osby, Avishai Cohen, Claudia 
Acuña, Ethan Iverson, Guillermo Klein and The Jazz Composers Collective. She is 
working on a jazz photo document called Jazz In New York: A Community of 
Visions. It consists of environmental portraits of NYC jazz musicians and people of 
the jazz industry in their homes. It explores jazz from a social and cultural 
point of view instead of a musical one. Her project takes musicians away from 
the stereotypical locations common in jazz books and iconography (the 
bandstand or studio) to show them in a more personal and revealing space. Started in 
2000, she plans to finish it in May 2005 with more than 275 portraits 
representing different ages, genders, background, instruments, musical approaches, and 
economic levels. 

Sheila Anderson: Author of The Quotable Musician: From Bach to Tupac 
(Allworth Press), published 3/03 and How to Grow As A Musician: What All Musicians 
Must Know to Succeed (Allworth Press) to be published July 2005. WBGO, 88.3FM, 
"Late Night Jazz" on Saturday Night, 9PM to 1AM. Ms. Anderson created "The Art 
of Jazz", a weekly 30-minute TV program for Time Warner Cable in New York City. 
The show earned her a Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN) Award for 
Community Media (www.mnn.org). 

Monk Rowe: In 1995 he became Director of the Hamilton College Jazz Archive. 
The mission of the archive has been to gather video interviews with renown jazz 
personalities, saving their stories and experiences for researchers, authors 
and interested jazz lovers. To date, about 250 have been conducted at many 
locations across the country. The archive officially opened in the fall of 1999. 
In addition to the interviews, commercial jazz videos, recordings and printed 
material about jazz are archived. Monk composed and recorded a series of tunes 
written for and dedicated to nine of the artists interviewed. The CD, 
entitled Jazz Life contains compositions recorded by Monk along with six respected 
jazz musicians: Wendell Brunious (trumpet and flugelhorn), Keter Betts (bass), 
Dennis Mackrel (drums), Rick Montalbano (piano), Jerome Richardson (alto sax), 
and Bill Watrous (trombone). 

Ted Panken: writes about jazz and improvised music for Down Beat, Jazziz, and 
the New York Daily News, and has broadcast it on WKCR since 1985. 

The Art of the Interview will focus on how different journalists do 
"interviews" using their different media, as well as some of the dos and don'ts in the 
art of interviewing. 

This is open to the public and we expect a large turnout. If you have any 
questions, please contact me, at lois at jazzcorner.com
