Volume 13—Post-Election Reflections with Gerald Clayton and special guests

 On Thursday, Nov. 5, we may or may not know who our next president is. We will still be living with an unprecedented pandemic. How will jazz musicians move forward, and help urge the rest of us on with purpose and grace? 

For this special edition of “Jazz and Social Justice,” Gerald Clayton, one of jazz’s most distinctive pianists, will perform a brief set. Following the music, he’ll join series host Larry Blumenfeld, clarinetist Evan Christopher and vocalist Fay Victor for a conversation about this moment, in arts and in life, and the road ahead. 


Jazz and Social Justice  

This ongoing series connects the music we love with the social and political issues that matter to us all. Each salon blends live performance with conversation between artists, activists, and experts. Curated and hosted by journalist Larry Blumenfeld, whose NJMIH programs during the past dozen years have considered Afro-Cuban influence within New York’s jazz scene and contemporary New Orleans.
