Listening Party 25: A Tribute to Jack Whitten

  • The Baltimore Museum of Art 10 Art Museum Drive Baltimore, MD, 21218 United States (map)

The Baltimore Museum of Art partnered with the Baltimore Kissa Society to host a listening party inspired by Jack Whitten’s passion for jazz. We gathered at the BMA and listened to vinyl recordings of jazz artists that fueled Whitten’s creative imagination including Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, and The Sun Ra Arkestra. We also listened to some amazing new jazz artists that are pushing ahead, just as Whitten did with his artistic practice. This was a nice two year anniversary.
