Langston Hughes Project: Ask Your Mama--12 Moods for Jazz
Saturday March 21, 2020 @ 7:30PM
Iconic American author, Langston Hughes wrote Ask Your Mama - 12 Moods for Jazz as a commentary on the struggles of the African-American community. In addition to his rhythmic prose, Hughes included musical notations but never created a musical score. Dr. Ron McCurdy developed these notes into 12 jazz pieces to be performed alongside the reading of the poem. Drawing from blues and Dixieland, gospel songs, boogie woogie, bebop and progressive jazz, Latin “cha cha” and Afro-Cuban mambo music, German lieder, Jewish liturgy, West Indian calypso and African drumming, this performance is sure to excite and inspire!
