Will Layman | Dizzy Diplomacy: Jazz Ambassadors and Cold War Culture (not hosted by GlobalPDX)

April 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$10 – $15

From the 1950s to the 1970s — as jazz took the world by storm, thanks to vehicles like Voice of America— the U.S. Department of State sent dozens of America’s greatest jazz musicians – including Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, Dave Brubeck, and Randy Weston—to tour the globe sharing their unique talents. This moment was a new experiment in what is now known more broadly as “cultural diplomacy.”

Join WorldOregon for an engaging discussion on cultural diplomacy with jazz critic/musician Will Layman followed by some live jazz with Layman, WorldOregon’s Tim DuRoche, and special guests!
