Exploring Jazz at Firehouse 12
Firehouse 12 in New Haven is an innovative space that is part of a neighborhood resurgence in downtown New Haven. In fact, the jazz trumpeter and composer Taylor Ho Bynum says that there are only a few places like it in the world. It's a high-tech recording studio that presents avant garde jazz, while attracting a crowd to its downstairs cocktail bar. The setting is a renovated firehouse in the up-and-coming Ninth Square neighborhood, newly filled with restaurants and galleries.
Today, where we live, we'll go inside for a special show - recorded live at Firehouse 12 earlier this week. Bynum, along with Connecticut jazz legend Mario Pavone and the founder of the space Nick Lloyd joined us and a sold-out audience to play and listen to creative music - and to talk about listening and the creative process. Come with us to Firehouse 12 on Where We Live.
