Ahh, music and art. Goes together better than chocolate and peanut butter. How could one possibly improve on that?
How about giving it to you EVERY Friday evening?! That's exactly what you get at the Philadelphia Museum of Art every Friday night.
Art After 5 features tributes to jazz musicians who helped shape the sound of 20th century music together with the artists that shaped the world in previous centuries.
This Friday (July 23, 2010) the tribute is to the phenomenal Nancy Wilson and the mesmerizing Cannonball Adderley. The task of bringing this music to life rest upon Joanna Pascale. Don't know who she is? Read on and I'm sure you will want to learn more about her:
