The German Historical Institute and the Austrian Cultural Forum Washington DC are pleased to collaborate on the following event which will feature a lecture and musical performance by historian Reinhold Wagnleitner and jazz musician Tom McDermott.

It is part of a series of events held by several institutions in Washington DC to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Blue Note Records. The German Historical Institute and the Goethe-Institut will collaborate on a photo exhibition, "Search for a New Sound. The Blue Note Photographs of Francis Wolff," at the Goethe-Institut May 3-31, 2014. The images in the exhibition, curated by Michael Cuscuna and Tom Evered, are from what is acknowledged as Blue Note's golden years of jazz recording. No other jazz label combined such inspired and impeccable musicianship with such distinctive photography and cover design.

Speaker and performer: Reinhold Wagnleitner (University of Salzburg) and Tom McDermott (Piano, New Orleans)
