Jazzthe quintessential open door genrehas a capacity to beautifully integrate all kinds of sources. From music from faraway places to compositions written and instruments used for completely different genres. When it comes to the human voice, jazz has shown an uncanny openness to its endless possibilities finding a musical role for all sorts of non verbal forms of expression. In these two hours we'll explore the jazz side of moaning, sighing, whistling, groaning, humming, growling, grunting, crying, etc. Don't worry... it's all going to be supremely musical, even virtuoisic... thanks to the creative minds of geniuses like Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Wayne Shorter, Toots Thielemans, Alessandro Alessandroni, John Zorn and Wynton Marsalis (yes! the yin and yang of New York's Jazz scene meaningfully back to back... )
