THINKING ABOUT JAZZ

Joe Williams: Everyday I Have the Blues
Aaron Myers, presenting

1-3pm ~ No Admission, lunch, door prizes

Born Joseph Goreed on December 12, 1918 in Cordele, GA to Willie Goreed and Ann Beatrice nee Gilbert he emerged to be one of the greatest of all American jazz singers.  At age three his mother and grandmother took him to Chicago where he grew up on the South Side and attended Austin Otis Sexton Elementary School and Englewood High.  As a teenager he joined the gospel group, the Jubilee Boys and performed in Chicago churches.  He toured with the Basie Band in the 50’s and toured and recorded with other musicians as his solo career flourished.  Williams appeared in movies and TV, especially Cosby Show and Sesame Street.  Later he was a regular attraction in Las Vegas, at festivals and cruise ships until his death on March 29, 1999 at the age of 80.  D.C. area vocalist Aaron Myers brings this lively discussion and performance footage on one of America’s greatest singers of all time.  Free admission; lunch, door prizes and great conversation are all free.

Jazz Night in D.C. on Fridays presents some of the area's finest jazz musicians in a lively presentation of classical, straight-ahead jazz.
