Jazz History Class

Charles Mingus (1/2)

Animated by Jean-Pol Schroeder from la Maison du Jazz in Liège.

Jean-Pol Schroeder, specialist in Jazz and more particularly in the history of this syncopated music in our flat country, created in 1994, with Jean-Marie Peterken, the Maison du Jazz de Liège, a real documentation and animation center and promotion of jazz in Belgium. For many years now, Jean-Pol Schroeder has collaborated with the Jazz Station by offering Jazz History lessons in thematic form, two Tuesdays a month. This season again, he continues his portraits of musicians who have marked their time. This special course, which is part of our festival, will be devoted to the double bass player and composer Charles Mingus, also renowned for his anti-racist commitment.

Produced with the support of the Brussels-Capital Region and Visit Brussels.

Concert organized as part of the River Jazz Festival.
