Harlem Stride piano was the first step beyond Ragtime that brought improvisation and rhythmic excitement to the living rooms, nightclubs and dance halls of Harlem. Join us as we celebrate the re-opening of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem with this landmark series.
Hosted by pianist Ethan Iverson, best known as one-third of the postmodern jazz trio The Bad Plus, is a jazz historian as well as a big fan of stride piano. For this intimate series, Iverson will discuss the history of stride, play recordings, and demonstrate at the keyboard.
