Thinking About Jazz
The Jazz Baroness
David Kastin, presenter

This fascinating story speaks to the place within jazz occupied by jazz patrons. Kathleen Annie Pannonica Rothschild was born in December, 1913 in London into the Rothschild family, once the wealthiest family in the world.  She married French diplomat Baron Jules de Koenigswarter and worked beside him in the French resistance and, with him, had five children.  In 1951 she heard a recording of “Round Midnight” by Thelonious Monk and realized she needed to find him and be around jazz.  Leaving everything behind she found Monk in New York and became his close friend and supporter until his death as well as a patron to a large number of other musicians.  Biographer David Kastin from Brooklyn, NY will be with us to make this presentation.
