Jazzy Talk
As part of a session of talks and demonstrations on jazz appreciation by well-known jazz experts, presented by Avid at the NCPA this month, Naresh Fernandes will give a lecture demonstration on the jazz journeys of music great, Teddy Weatherford.
The African-American pianist, who died in Calcutta in 1944 was extremely popular, he played alongside Louis Armstrong and spent more than ten years in India. The lecture, complete with old recordings, will focus on how Teddy Weatherford laid the foundation which influences jazz in the city today.
Naresh tells us, “The lecture travels back to Bombay in the mid-1930s, through the music of the African-American pianist Teddy Weatherford. He played a vital role in helping jazz find a home in India. His music shows how Bombay was part of a global cultural circuit that laid the foundation for the contemporary music.”
Consulting editor to Time Out’s Indian editions as well as a Poesis fellow at New York University’s Institute for Public Knowledge, Naresh Fernandes’ book Taj Mahal Foxtrot: The Story of Bombay’s Jazz Age, will be out in November.
