Guest Vocalist with the Thelonious Monk Institute Ensemble @ Herman Leonard Photo Exhibition, Downtown Los Angeles

Guest Vocalist with the Thelonious Monk Institute Ensemble @ Herman Leonard Photo Exhibition, Downtown Los Angeles

Chief Judge Virginia Phillips is pleased to announce that the United States District Court is sponsoring an exhibition of postwar photographs of jazz life by Herman Leonard. Shot in New York between 1948 and 1956, Leonard's work documented the birth of bebop. K. Heather Pinson, the author of The Jazz Image (University Press of Mississippi, 2010), a study of Leonard's work, has said, He was a master of jazz, except his instrument was a camera. His photographs are probably the single best visual representation of what jazz sounds like. The exhibition, which begins in September, is from the collection of the National Portrait Gallery and features Leonard's iconic images of jazz legends such as Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Billie Holiday, Quincy Jones, Thelonious Monk, Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughn, and Dinah Washington.

As part of the exhibition, the Court is hosting a reception to honor Leonard's life, his work, and iconic American jazz artists he captured with his camera. The UCLA Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance is scheduled to perform with guest vocalist Tiffany Austin. The event will be free to the public and the Court is making a special effort to reach our community's secondary school students to raise their awareness of jazz and its titans. The reception is scheduled for September 28, 2017, starting at 4:00 p.m.


This exhibition is also presented in celebration of the 2016 Grand Opening of the new state-of-the-art 1st Street Federal Courthouse in downtown Los Angeles.

Tiffany Austin Trio - Live Recording of KALW's "Philosophy Talk"

Tiffany Austin will perform live with pianist Adam Shulman and bassist David Ewell for a live recording of KALW's "Philosophy Talk". Event details below:

***

Join us at Stanford University CEMEX Auditorium for a live recording of "Nonhuman Rights" with legal scholar Steven M. Wise, founder and president of the Nonhuman Rights Project:

Human rights—like freedom from discrimination and slavery—are fundamental rights and freedoms that every person enjoys simply because they're human. But what about other animals, like monkeys, elephants, and dolphins? Should they enjoy similar fundamental rights? If we can extend the legal notion of personhood to inanimate, abstract objects like corporations, then shouldn’t it also be extended to other sentient creatures? How should we understand the concept of a “person” when it’s applied to nonhumans? What kind of cognitive and emotional complexity is required for nonhuman personhood? 

This event is free and open to the public but registration is required. More information at https://philosophytalk.org/node/5664.

Tiffany Austin: 100 Years of Ella! @SFJAZZ (Minor Auditorium) $5-$10

Family Matinee: Tiffany Austin

SFJAZZ is proud to celebrate the centennial of one of the greatest voices in jazz and First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald! Born in 1917, Ella’s powerful tone, impeccable phrasing and uncanny scatting made her one of the most beloved vocalists in American music history. Since her seminal days with the Chick Webb Orchestra before launching her stunning solo career, Lady Ella immortalized jazz and popular song like no one else. From her exquisite rendition of “A-Tisket, A-Tasket” to her many collaborations with jazz giants, Fitzgerald was among the heralded jazz singers to canonize the Great American Songbook and successfully cross over to the non-jazz audience. For our Family Matinee in honor of Women’s History Month, Bay Area soulful songstress Tiffany Austin celebrates the legacy of one of the most iconic figures in American music.
