The Langston Hughes Project – Jazz FM Nomination

The Langston Hughes Project – Jazz FM Nomination


In November 2015 we were thrilled to help bring the Langston Hughes Project to the UK for the first time. Ron McCurdy has been performing the piece in the US for several years and its UK debut at the Barbican with guest narrator Ice-T received glowing reviews.

We’ve just received the news that it has been nominated for the Jazz FM award of Live Experience of the Year.

This award is open to public vote so if you have a minute to vote here please do!

Ask Your Mama!

Here’s Ron McCurdy on the Barbican’s podcast talking about a project we’re really excited to be involved in – Langston Hughes’ groundbreaking jazz poetry piece Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz.

This will be performed on Saturday 21st November as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival with special narrator Ice-T.
