Angel City Jazz Festival teams up with the newly established Vernacular: New Music series to present an intergenerational improvisation mashup of more than 20 veteran and emerging musicians performing eight 30 minute sets as duos and trios.
Presented in association with the Vernacular New Music Series.

Vernacular: New Music series was born of a chance encounter at Oracle Tavern that resulted in me agreeing to book new music there on alternating Monday nights. Los Angeles is home to a community of exceptionally deep and diverse talent, and I thought immediately that the Oracle could be a comfortable place to host music created honestly in the moment, with no other stated purpose or agenda. 
I’m extremely gratified that musicians and listeners agree and have built up the series well beyond our expectations since we began nearly a year ago. 
This program represents –  and is dedicated to – the exploratory and supportive spirit of the musicians and listeners of the Los Angeles improvised music community and its extensions worldwide.
