About “Jazzing: Memoirs in Jazz”.

Inspired by the Breman Museum exhibition of Photographs and Stories of legendary Jazz greats by Jewish photographer, Herb Snitzer. Choreographer Waverly T. Lucas, II utilized fieldwork skills attained during his 2020 Ethnochoreology from the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance of the University of Limerick to share the passionate accounts of Herb Snitzer that motivated the impetus for this representation through dance.

These photographs capture the essence and professional lives of these masterful musicians and their navigation of the Jim Crow world of prejudice and racism. Snitzer’s work illuminates the authentic, human personas of these jazz artists while balancing the role of observer and participant-observer through his gift of photography.

The union of Blacks and Jews that emerged during the Civil Rights Movement was born of shared experiences and cultural expressions, including jazz music.
