Côte à Côte explores the intersection of jazz with postwar art and culture. A two-day multimedia program on November 13 and 14 features conversations with artists and musicians, poetry readings, musical performances, and talks on art, literature and music. Daytime events include conversation with master photographer William Claxton with special guests Bud Shank and Dennis Hopper, the premier of George Herms’ free jazz opera featuring Los Angeles based jazz musicians, a reading and performance by renowned poet and musician of the beat generation David Meltzer, sets by Central Avenue jazz legends Clora Bryant, Ernie Andrews and Buddy Collette, and more. On November 14, an evening screening of rare film shorts from French and American archives features live musical accompaniment by René Urtreger. Côte à Côte culminates in a concert on November 15, with West Coast and French musicians playing well-known jazz favorites and new interpretations of jazz classics. Held in conjunction with the Orange County Museum of Art exhibition Birth of the Cool, Côte à Côte explores and explodes creative boundaries—bringing artists, scholars, poets, and musicians of different ages and nationalities together to celebrate their shared love of jazz.
