Jazz Vespers 2016: January 17th; February 21st; March 20th; April 17th; May 15th;
Welcome to a jazz-filled hour of spiritual nourishment, relaxation, rejuvenation, rejoicing, meditation and inspiration
Jazz Vespers is a synthesis of several traditions, each finding a unifying voice through the unique musical heritage that we call jazz. The makers of jazz develop consummate technical achievement as both composers and performers. The virtuosity of the performers is not an end unto itself. The musical tradition is about the task of giving voice to the hopes, dreams, frustrations and pain that expresses human experience. Jazz is the musical incense that collects and carries the prayers of a people. Numerous jazz composers have secured a place for this art form within the living tradition of the church, including Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck, Wynton Marsalis, and Pat Metheny.
