Local writer D.A. Kolodenko has researched and written a number of articles about San Diego’s jazz legends and history, in addition to herding some of those jazz cats into some jazz sessions over the years. He gave us the scoop on some local history, where to check out some of those jams and whom to watch, like young pianist Joshua White.
At our Meeting of the Minds event last week, Kolodenko was one of six speakers highlighting arts and culture topics in a visual, rapid-fire presentation style. Each presenter had 20 slides, displayed for 20 seconds each. The standing-room-only event was at the Luce Loft in East Village.
Note: Some of the images from Kolodenko’s presentation aren’t in this video because we lacked permission to republish.
And add your thoughts: Who from Kolodenko’s presentation have you seen play? Who are you most excited about in San Diego’s jazz scene these days? Leave a comment below.
