Event Details

Germaine Bazzle taught “music appreciation” by day for 50 years in Louisiana classrooms, retiring in 2008. But she’s been teaching the same subject by night for a heck of a lot longer — at clubs, concerts, and festivals in and around New Orleans. Ms. Bazzle is the city’s pre-eminent modern jazz chanteuse. City leaders said as much in early 2020, when they proclaimed March 5th “Germaine Bazzle Day.”

Bazzle scats. She mimics the sounds of instruments not on the band stand. She articulates every word of a lyric as an exercise in enunciation. She moves the way a Merce Cunningham or a Bill T. Jones might move, if they choreographed a dance to “Lush Life” or “Just in Time,” or some other melody that leaves listeners in puddles of joy and regret.

Join us for a magical night of music at the Cary Saurage Community Arts Center in the John and Virginia Noland Black Box.
