Jazz Journalists Association
Presents Jazz Matters:

"The Art of the Interview"

The Jazz Journalists Association, a non-profit organization, will 
present "The Art of the Interview," a panel of experts discussing 
interviewing techniques on Wednesday, March 23, from 6-8 pm at the New 
School Jazz Performance Space, 55 W. 13th St. in New York.  The event 
is free and open to the public and is the second in a series of four 
presentations planned for Spring, 2005.  Panelists include Sheila 
Anderson, WBGO Radio; Lourdes Delgado, photographer;  Butch Morris, 
composer; Ted Panken, writer and broadcaster; and Monk Rowe, 
videographer and Director of the Hamilton College Jazz Archive.

“The Art of the Interview” will focus on successful techniques used by 
journalists to generate informative and productive interviews as well 
as do’s and don’ts that should be mutually observed by the journalist 
and the subject.

The Jazz Journalists Association is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit 
organization of internationally-based writers, editors, photographers, 
broadcasters and media specialists who institute collegial and 
educational programs for the appreciation, documentation and 
promulgation of jazz. As of January 2005, JJA comprises more than 400 
members, mostly in the US and Canada, but also in Australia, Europe, 
the UK, Japan, Mexico, Moscow, South Africa and South America.  For

Sheila Anderson--Author of “The Quotable Musician:  From Bach to Tupac” 
(Allworth Press), published March 2003, and “How to Grow as a Musician: 
   What All Musicians Must Know to Succeed” (Allworth Press), to be 
published July 2005.  Anderson hosts WBGO Radio’s “Late Night Jazz” on 
Saturdays, 9 pm to 1 am and created “The Art of Jazz,” a weekly thirty 
minute program for Time Warner Cable in New York City.  The show earned 
Anderson a Manhattan Neighborhood Network Award for Community Media 
(www.mnn.org).

Lourdes Delgado-Born in Spain,  Delgado has been a freelance 
photographer since 1999.  She has contributed photos to the albums of 
Chick Corea, Kenny Barron, Greg Osby, Avishai Cohen, Claudia Acuna, 
Ethan Iverson, Guillermo Klein and the Jazz Composers Collective.  
Delgado is working on a jazz photo document called “Jazz in New York:  
A Community of Visions” that consists of environmental portraits of New 
York jazz musicians and people in the jazz industry inside their homes. 
  It explores jazz politically and culturally rather than musically.  
Her project takes musicians away from the stereotypical locations 
common in other jazz books and iconography (the bandstand or studio) to 
present them in a more personal and revealing space.  Started in 2000, 
the project is planned for completion in May 2005 with more than 275 
portraits representing a variety of age, gender, background, 
instrument, musical aproach and economic level.

Butch Morris--Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris is a leading innovator in the 
integration of jazz, new music, improvisation and contemporary 
classical music.  Mr. Morris’ work redefines the roles of composer, 
conductor, arranger and performer and bridges the gap between composer, 
improviser and the classically oriented musician.

Ted Panken--Ted Panken writes about jazz and improvised music for 
Downbeat, Jazziz and the New York Daily News, and has broadcast on WKCR 
since 1985.

Monk Rowe--In 1995, Monk Rowe became Director of the Hamilton College 
Jazz Archive, whose mission has been to gather video interviews with 
renown jazz personalities to record their stories and experiences for 
researchers, authors and jazz lovers.  To date, about 250 interviews 
have been conducted at locations across the country.  The archive 
opened in the Fall of 1999 and includes interviews, commercial jazz 
videos, recordings and printed material.  Monk composed and recorded a 
series of tunes written for and dedicated to nine of the artists 
interviewed.
