The Jazz of the Music Biz w/ Talib Kweli, Jarret Myer & Om’Mas Keith

Talib Kweli (the MC), Om'Mas Keith (the producer), Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah (the jazz artist), & Jarret Myer (the executive) will discuss how their love of jazz and how avant garde music fits into their philosophy of creation and the music business as a whole. Lovers or classic hip hop and experimental music looking to find success in the modern music business will hear from the three panelists on how they draw inspiration from jazz in their commercial successes and businesses, answering questions like: How do you walk the line between commercial success and artistry? How can you apply techniques from jazz and avant garde into something more mainstream?
