Playing tracks by
Mitch Glickman and Yellowjackets.
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.
