Jazz From Row Six Book Talk

Jazz From Row Six Book Talk

Join photographer Jean Germain on Wednesday, September 4, at 7 PM, in the Meeting Room for a talk on her great book of jazz musicians.

Whether it is Bucky and John Pizzarelli jamming together or Eartha Kitt showing that she still has “it” at age 80, Jazz From Row Six is a book filled with exciting photographs of legendary musicians performing America’s original art form. Along with the 100 photographs are personal anecdotes documenting a snapshot in the history of the big band sound.

As a former elementary school teacher, author/photographer Jean Germain visually emphasizes  the passing of the torch as the masters mentor the next generation of musicians.

From 1981 – 2007, Germain had a unique opportunity to photograph year after year hundreds of world renowned musicians playing at the Sarasota Jazz Festival.  

Her talk at the Brooks Memorial Library will focus on stories of the famous musicians, the performances, and how keeping jazz alive is of historic importance.

    Eugene Uman sent this message out yesterday about this event:

    “I wish that I could attend this lecture that will take place tomorrow, Wednesday evening at 7:00 PM at Brattleboro’s Memorial Library. Author/Photographer, Jean Germaine is a friend who has been supporting the Vermont Jazz Center through sales of her gorgeous book. Her beautiful prints have graced our entryway for most of last season’s concerts.

    Please be sure to attend the lecture at the Brattleboro Memorial Library tomorrow, Wednesday, September 4th. Jean’s story is amazing, it’s a reflection of the good of humanity, very uplifting. She is a music lover who became a music photographer late in life, after figuring it all out, she is accomplishing her goal to represent the fluidity of the jazz lineage through a keen eye and a soft heart.

    Highly recommended.
