Johnny Mandel today at the Jazz Museum, NY

The 81-year old great arranger and composer Johnny Mandel, will be giving today, at 6:30 PM, a free lecture on the "Harlem Speaks" series at the Jazz Museum, Harlem School of the Arts (645 St Nicholas Ave, New York). "Harlem Speaks" is a biweekly series to honor persons keeping the flame of jazz alive in Harlem.

“Jazz lives and breathes in Harlem today, not just in the gloried past of yesterday,” says Loren Schoenberg. “There are musicians, promoters, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists, among others, whose efforts insure that this great music perseveres. We at the Jazz Museum in Harlem salute these individuals, and invite the jazz community to share in our celebration of their contributions to jazz in Harlem.”

The series, co-produced by the Jazz Museum in Harlem and consultant Greg Thomas, is free to the public. For reservations, call: 212-348-8300.

The venue for Harlem Speaks varies from week to week. Please check the individual event for venue information.
