Jazz in Review: The Beginning
The Brookfield Jazz Society (BJS) held their first meeting in the lower level of the Brookfield Village Hall on a Thursday in March. There were only 15 people in attendance to listen to Ian's first Jazz Presentation. Just six months later the very first Live Jazz Event took place in the Cozy Cottage at the Irish Times Pub. After that the BJS quickly grew with more people in attendance, attracting more membership and many more bands to perform, some more than once, for the attentive audience. Ten years later there were over 370 presentations, over a dozen special events, and over 130 live jazz events.
Jazz in Review: Part 1
Date: April 23rd, 2015
Media: DVD Video Production
The Brookfield Jazz Society featured an Epic Presentation titled "Jazz in Review: Part 1", which highlighted the music from live jazz events held over the first 10 Years of Supporting Jazz in Brookfield and the surrounding area. The video DVD presentation offered select music tracks from the performers and groups (see list below) that have entertained audiences starting in October 2005 through April 2009, which was the 50th live jazz event. Accompanying the audio tracks were informational slides that highlight certain presentations and special events held by the Brookfield Jazz Society over the same time period. Added to the mix were some Fun Facts about the BJS that impressed audience members.
