Great Gatsby
JazzFresno and the Fresno County Public Libraries host (free and open to the public) Jazz at the Library on Tuesday March 18th, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. at the Woodward Park Regional County Library located at 944 E. Perrin Ave. (Champlain & Perrin).

Local jazz educator/trombonist/vocalist Les Nunes will offer a presentation based on the music of the 1920s and incorporating the featured book from "The Big Read," F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby." Tin Pan Alley was where the beat started and the hits just kept on coming! Every speakeasy or ritzy joint was known for some amazing music and Les's presentation is going to give a taste of what it was like.
