Certainly one of the most respected and original of modern jazz trumpeters, Art Farmer (1928-1999) left a substantial legacy throughout a career that lasted over 50 years. 2018 brings the 90th anniversary of his birth as well as the creation of a new website dedicated to his life and music (www.artfarmer.org).
Join us when author and discographer Noal Cohen and Lynne Mueller, leader of the website team and significant friend and manager of Farmer in the later years of his life, present a curated listening session highlighting his recordings, including those made when he was living in Europe.
