Pitchfork is hosting a panel next week about jazz artists pushing the genre forward, in conjunction with the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. The livestreamed conversation will feature CÃ©cile McLorin Salvant, Samora Pinderhughes, and Jen Shyu, with Pitchfork staff writer Allison Hussey moderating. It happens on Tuesday, May 24, at 7 p.m. Eastern. Tune in live via Pitchfork’s homepage or on YouTube.
Earlier this year, Salvant released Ghost Song, her first LP since winning a Doris Duke Artist Award and being named a MacArthur Foundation Fellow in 2020. Pinderhughes’ latest album is April’s Grief, which he launched with a “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert” in his ongoing exhibition The Healing Project (at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts); he also shared the short film for “Masculinity.” Shyu most recently issued Zero Grasses: Ritual for the Losses with her Jade Tongue ensemble, last spring.
