In Conversation: James Newton & Vida L. Brown on the Eric Dolphy


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Join us for a night of storytelling and recorded music in celebration of the life and musical contributions of the late Eric Dolphy (pictured), a noted 20th-century multi-instrumentalist jazz musician. James Newton, distinguished professor of ethnomusicology at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, will share artifacts and stories about the musician and his Leimert Park home, which burned during the 1992 Los Angeles Uprising. The program, moderated by visual arts curator and program manager Vida L. Brown, is presented in conjunction with Charting the Terrain, which features a work by Pamela Smith Hudson that references the home and speculates on treasures that may have been tragically lost.
