Collide with music’s past and present through jazz standards, hip hop samples, and actual liner notes—recording inserts that allow artists to share with their fans influential genres and personal statements of artistic expression. Master teaching artist, dancer, actress, playwright, and director Paige Hernandez and collaborators Baye Harrell, Akua Allrich, and Kris Funn’s Corner Store Jazz Quintet fuse live music, poetry, theatre, and a multimedia design into an electrifying performance that brings together generations of music lovers in celebration. Sing along, dance, and live tweet while this exceptional troupe uncovers the stories behind some of music’s biggest hits. Hernandez says of this community gathering, “The love from a Liner Notes audience is enough to move mountains.”
