You Bring the Kids, We'll Bring the Jazz WBGO celebrates with jazz and blues pianist, composer, singer, producer, and educator Eli Yamin. Eli will present “ Jazz Power, an interactive program for families with Zah! Jazz Youth and Antoinette Montague.” Eli makes teaching and learning jazz as joyful and creative as playing it. His imaginative piano playing has taken him around the world with his own groups as a cultural ambassador for the U.S. Department of State. In addition to his accomplishments, Eli was commissioned by WBGO Radio to create and perform Jazz Play/Play Jazz, an interactive jazz and theatre performance that toured Newark schools. Recommended ages for this event are from 7-11.
