Representing Jazz in the 21st Century

A Talk by

Prof. Krin Gabbard

In 1995, Krin Gabbard published the anthology, Representing Jazz (Duke University Press), which many believe helped usher in a new era of jazz studies. 

Twenty-four years later, Prof. Gabbard considers how representations of jazz music and jazz artists have changed in the years since

the publication of the anthology.  He will discuss films, novels, and even television programs that have invoked jazz.  Prof. Gabbard teaches in the Jazz Studies

program at Columbia and is the author, most recently, of Better Git It in Your Soul: An Interpretive Biography of Charles Mingus (University of California Press).
