Join curator and host Ted Panken for an in-depth Desert Island Discs listening party with Lakecia Benjamin, three-time GRAMMY-nominated alto saxophonist-bandleader who grew up in Washington Heights. Benjamin will be on her home turf on May 28th, when she comes to NJMH for Desert Island Disks, playing tracks she’d want with her on the proverbial desert island, and discussing them with host Ted Panken.

DESERT ISLAND DISCS: In the fall of Protected content , the Protected content debuted its version of Desert Island Discs. It’s modeled on an iconic BBC radio show, extant since Protected content , which invites eminences from various walks of life to choose—and discuss—the eight records they would bring for a stay on the apocryphal desert island. For the Jazz Museum’s expanded version curated and hosted by esteemed journalist Ted Panken, the presenters are jazz musicians, who will present a cohort of music, of any genre, that was essential in the formation and evolution of their musical personality.

Optional donation when you reserve.
