Episode 7 -- Flower District

« previous episode | next episode »

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

In keeping with the memories musicians had of leaving the loft in early morning after all-night jam sessions — and getting hit with the aroma of flowers from the neighboring wholesale shops — we look at the Flower District. (Originally aired November 22, 2009)

We learn how this non-residential neighborhood bustled furiously during the day and emptied out after 6pm,  leaving the night wide open for music-making of all kinds without complaint.  We hear from people whose businesses were near the Loft, and also from the musicians who came and went.  With neighbor David Rothman, Flower shop owners, musicians Crow, Hall, Brookmeyer, Charles, Swallow, among others.

 

 

The Jazz Loft Project Radio Series was supported in part by a grant from The National Endowment for the Humanities; and by an award from The National Endowment for the Arts.
