THE CAROLINA JAZZ CONNECTION WITH LARRY THOMAS IN SHELBY, NORTH CAROLINA ON DECEMBER 13, 2017! by LARRY RENI THOMAS
(Published: December 05, 2017)


The Carolina Jazz Connection with Larry Thomas, a lecture about the fact that there are over 75 native North Carolina jazz musicians, will take place December 13, 2017 at 12:00 pm, at The Earl Scruggs Center, 103 South Lafayette Street, Shelby, North Carolina. Thomas, a veteran Chapel Hill, North Carolina-based writer/radio announcer/historian, who holds a M.A. in History from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and has done further study at UNC-CH's Journalism graduate school, has given the lecture at schools, colleges, universities and public places throughout the East coast since 2008. His emphasis is on the historical reasons, the contributing factors that caused so many natives, like Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Max Roach and Nina Simone, to become well-known musical masters.

Thomas, who has worked at seven radio stations, is the host "Sunday Night Jazz" on WCOM-FM (www.wcomfm.org), Chapel Hill-Carrboro, North Carolina. He is the author of the much-read article, "The Lady Who Shot Lee Morgan." He was named Jazz Hero in 2014 by The Jazz Journalists Association; received the Fifth Annual Donald Meade Legacy Jazz Griot Award at The Jazz Education Network (JEN) conference in 2016, and has been a downbeat magazine jazz critic since 2012, as well as a contributor to jazz corner.com and ejazznews.com. Larry is presently writing a book titled: Carolina Shout: That Wonderful, Soulful Blessing: The Carolina Jazz Connection! He is featured in the documentary films: Wilmington On Fire (www.wilmingtononfire.com) and I Called Him Morgan (www.icalledhimmorgan.com).
