As we move closer to the opening of the Sixth Annual Indy Jazz Fest, not all that is jazz has to be heard. The visual side of the music will be on display by two of Indy’s prolific visual presenters.
Photographer Larry Goshen’s ever-present camera has been documenting the Indy jazz scene for over two decades. Starting Indy Jazz Fest week, June 14 through June 27, under the heading Jammin’ at the Jazz Fest, for the first time Goshen will present his selected photographs of the Indy Jazz Fest 1999 through 2003. Goshen’s photographs will be exhibited at the Indianapolis Artsgarden, Mondays through Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sundays, 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Jazz illustrator Bam Miller has been a prolific factor in capturing with her pen and pencil the essence of live jazz performances. This month, Miller’s annual exhibit of Jazz Blues and Other Hues, as well as her original jazz poetry, can be seen and heard at the second floor Galleria at the Bank One Tower, 111 Monument Circle, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Miller has also recorded a new CD of her jazz poetry titled Jazz Blues and Other Hues. She’s backed up by Jack Gilfoy, drums, the Rev. Marvin Chandler, piano, Mingo Jones, bass, and David Young, sax. On Saturday, June 12, Miller will host a CD release party at the Jazz Kitchen from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and recite her works, supported by the CD’s quartet.
