Eureka Chapter – 615 H St.  Eureka, CA

Long-time jazz aficionado and past interviewer/reviewer for the New Books Network New Books in Jazz segment Doc Stull will present an entertaining  and informative look (with audio, television and movie clips) at the important contribution of early Italian immigrants to jazz as well as later Italian-American entertainers and innovators such as Jimmy Durante, Nick LaRocca, Leon Ropollo, Joe Venuti, Eddie Lang, Louis Prima, Louis Bellson , Vince Guaraldi and many others.   Though most American and international audiences may be familiar with epic popular singers such as Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, both of whom had strong crossover stylistic jazz sensibilities, many are unfamiliar with the fascinating Italian-American connections to jazz.

    Looks great Dick.
    One more to add: Eddie Lang, father of the jazz guitar, born Salvatore Massaro.
    He played duets with Lonnie Johnson, and in big bands.
