Harlem Stride piano was the first step beyond Ragtime that brought improvisation and rhythmic excitement to the living rooms, nightclubs and dance halls of Harlem. Join us as we celebrate the re-opening of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem with this landmark series.

Hosted by pianist Ethan Iverson, best known as one-third of the postmodern jazz trio The Bad Plus, is a jazz historian as well as a big fan of stride piano. For this intimate series, Iverson will discuss the history of stride, play recordings, and demonstrate at the keyboard.

January 12 - Classical Excellence
January 19 - Jazz Piano

What is stride piano and who popularized it? Iverson's lectures and listening sessions will begin with the classics, the men who dominated the form in Harlem in the 1920s and 30s.
