Softly, With Feeling: the Life and Music of Joe Wilder

Ed Berger, former IJS Associate Director and current Special Projects Consultant, will present a program on trumpeter Joe Wilder (1922-2014). The presentation will include many rare audio and video clips and other material uncovered during Berger’s research for his recent book, Softly with Feeling: Joe Wilder and the Breaking of Barriers in American Music (Temple University Press, 2014). Apart from his career as a jazz trumpeter, including tenures with the big bands of Les Hite, Lionel Hampton, Jimmie Lunceford, Dizzy Gillespie, Lucky Millinder, and Count Basie, Wilder was also a pioneer in breaking racial barriers in the classical world, in the network studio orchestras, on Broadway, and in the military as one of the first African American Marines during World War II. In his later years, he also was active as an educator serving as a member of the faculty at Juilliard for over a decade. Wilder was named an NEA Jazz Master in 2008.

The roundtable runs from 7-9 PM in the Dana Room, John Cotton Dana Library, 4th floor, Rutgers University-Newark. 

THE ROUNDTABLE IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
