Jazz at LACMA: Meet the Musicians – Yellowjackets

Jazz at LACMA: Meet the Musicians – Yellowjackets

Playing tracks by

Mitch Glickman and Yellowjackets.

Chart positions

This show was 40th in the global interview chart.

Jazz at LACMA would have opened its 29th season with the legendary jazz quartet, the Yellowjackets. In place of the live concert, we present Jazz at LACMA: Meet the Musicians, an audio interview series hosted by Mitch Glickman.

For the first episode in the series, Mitch Glickman talks with members of the Yellowjackets, discussing the genesis of the group, getting to know the current members, and contemplating whether music is essential in these hard times.

The Los Angeles based Yellowjackets have been a creative force on the jazz scene since 1981. The band has recorded 30 albums, been nominated for 17 GRAMMY® Awards, and has adventurously amplified the eclectic, electro-acoustic soundscape, creating a unique jazz sound since its fusion beginnings.

Coming from a person who has sat in the front row of the LACMA Friday Jazz Concerts for over 10 years, this "Meet the Musicians sharing some of the groups music who is being interviewed, & more importantly, I can go back and listen to it again, send the email to others who are not on the LACMA email, especially "out-of-California" family & friends, it has been a "happy blessing". I look forward to these weekly "Meet-the-Musicians" & music thru emails from LACMA.
Love U Mitch and for your creativity-of-happiness!
