Throughout the school year, the Institute for
Retired Professionals (IRP) presents lectures on timely topics for members, the
New School community, and the general public. This year, as it commemorates 50
years at The New School, the IRP celebrates the richness and diversity of faculty
voices at the university. Fridays @ One is supported by a generous gift from
the Estelle Tolkin Memorial Fund.
The intimacy of the duo setting is something that has challenged and fascinated jazz artists throughout jazz history. Renowned pianist Fred Hersch and soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom have been long-time collaborators since the early 1980’s and cite this format as a special vehicle for the unique mix of expression and surprise in their art. These two seasoned improvisers will perform and talk about what playing "in twos" means for them.
