Brown bag lunch with Peter Shea, director and producer of the Bat of Minerva Interview series.

"Most ideas pass you by. Most of the ideas on your bookshelf, in your newspaper, even in your conversation pass you by. They aren’t for you right now. How some item becomes timely, relevant, possible, and beguiling – able to cross over the blood/brain barrier into action – that’s our topic for these discussions."

“Jazz the Way The Old Guys Played” – A sax player comes up the hard way, touring with the old guys. He moves to Manhattan because that is the place to prove things. But can he make anybody understand that the way he learned jazz matters? Will the old ideal be forgotten for academic music?

Mark you calendar for the third discussion in the series on May 6, 2013.
