Langston Hughes Project at the Clemens Fine Arts Center
April's Jazz Appreciation Month culminates with an international celebration of this distinctly American art form, and the Clemens Center highlights the occasion with The Langston Hughes Project. A multimedia concert performance of Langston Hughes' kaleidoscopic jazz poem, "Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz" is Hughes' homage, in verse and music, to the struggle for artistic and social freedom in America and abroad in the early 1960s. Featuring the Ron McCurdy Quartet, this is a creative collaboration of words, sounds and images explores the world of blues, gospel songs, boogie woogie, bebop and progressive jazz, Afro-Cuban mambo music, West Indian calypso, African drumming and more!
