Rhythm and Jews: Stories of Jazz, Blues, Rock and Popular Culture    NEW!

We'll document the fertile interaction between minorities that transformed, not only the music of the 20th century, but the whole industry of entertainment and popular culture. With strong support from audiovisuals and based on my own experience as concert promoter for 3 decades, we'll explore the legacy of the most relevant singers, performers, producers, record labels and booking agencies in the history of Rock, Pop, Blues and Jazz. We’ll learn how the main Jazz standards and the Great American Songbook were built, by artists like Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Benny Goodman, Stan Getz, etc., and how their legacy influenced Leiber and Stoller, Bob Dylan, Barbra Streisand, Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen, Kiss, Slash and many more.
