Join us for a performance by Art of Cool All-Star Band, led by Al Strong. Celebrating America’s earliest pop music, the Art of Cool All-Stars will perform a wide array of exciting selections from the early jazz repertoire of New Orleans. This performance complements the opening of John Akomfrah: Precarity, a three-channel video set in New Orleans that examines the life and times of Charles “Buddy” Bolden, the first person known to have explored the sonic tonalities of the music we now call jazz. General admission is free all day Thursday, 10 AM – 9 PM.
