Jazz For Curious Listeners
A Cutting Session: Rhythm in Film With Emily Hubley
7:00-8:30 PM
Location: Maysles Cinema (343 Lenox Avenue)

At the root of cinema is the art of editing; the assemblage of footage in time, which by definition creates its own rhythm. As part of our regular collaboration with the Maysles Institute and Cinema, we are proud to present filmmaker Emily Hubley for an inside look on the intersections of rhythm, jazz and cinema. Ms. Hubley worked closely with her parents, pioneer animators Faith and John Hubley, and their classic works utilized music created specifically for the films by Quincy Jones, Benny Carter and Dizzy Gillespie. Ms. Hubley's feature film, The Toe Tactic, had its theatrical premiere at the Museum of Modern Art in January 2009 and was released on DVD by Kino International in the fall. Hubley's films are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, Department of Film.

Parallax Conversation Series
Body and Soul: Rhythm and the Body with Frederick Schjang and LaFrae Sci
7:00-8:30 PM
Location: The National Jazz Museum in Harlem

Parallax: noun- The effect whereby the position or direction of an object appears to differ when viewed from different positions.

In this installment of the Parallax Conversation series we will have fitness instructor and physical therapist Frederick Schjang in conversation with drummer LaFrae Sci on the connections between the body, rhythm, and music. With Schjang often taking his students and clients to live jazz shows as part of his healing process and Sci seeing her music as a tool for healing, this session will focus on the way music and rhythm affect our bodies and lifestyle as a whole.
