Jazz presenters, administrators and cultural consultants, arts journalism educators, politicians and other influential public figures, leaders in jazz diplomacy efforts and curators of musicians’ homes turned into museums will be panelists in five free monthly interactive online panels in a series titled Talking Jazz,produced by Jazz Journalists Association.

Starting yesterday, the 90-minute unpacking of issues vital to understanding the contemporary development of jazz as a functional art form is suited to the general public as well as practitioners of the musical and performing arts, professional and grassroots supporters. Attendees will be able to pose questions of panelists, for real time answers. Attendance at the panels, to be held on Google Hangouts on the Air, is free, but advance registration is required.

Series sessions are: “What Should Arts Journalists Know?”(October 10),”Federal, State and City Arts Funding” (November 20),”Jazz Diplomacy Now” (December 18), and “Museums Keep Jazz Alive” (January 22).

The JJA’s intent in producing the series is to stimulate well-informed discussion of significant and timely issues regarding jazz and jazz journalism among all friends and followers of the music.
