Will Friedwald’s Clip Joint: Scenes from the American Songbook
In this new series, Will Friedwald (feature writer for THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, VANITY FAIR and the author of nine books on popular music) presents curated video clips from his extensive vintage collection to illustrate the great artistry of the performers and composers of the American Songbook. The presentations will be driven both by a profundity of rare and fascinating video footage, nearly all of which hasn’t been seen publicly in decades (not available on home video or youTube) and his own incisive commentary. Many shows will feature unique guest stars as well.
Jan 24, 12 pm - 92Y (2016 92nd Street)
