"The World Stage is an educational and performance arts gallery in Leimert Park Village, the heart of LAs African American cultural community. The Stage, as it is affectionately called, was founded in 1989 by the late world renowned master jazz drummer Billy Higgins and by poet and community arts activist Kamau Daood in an attempt to fill a cultural void that existed in the Los Angeles community. Initially formed as a loose collective of artists and arts supporters, The World Stage has grown to assume a pioneering and pivotal role in the flowering of an arts movement in Leimert Park that has been hailed as the black cultural mecca by the Los Angeles Times."

Book Soup presents Jazz Legend Herbie Hancock, in conversation with LA Times Jazz Critic Don Heckman, in support of Herbie Hancock: Possibilities
DESCRIPTION
The long-awaited memoir by one of the most influential and beloved musicians of our time. In Herbie Hancock, the legendary jazz musician and composer reflects on a life and a thriving career that has spanned seven decades. A true innovator, Hancock has had an enormous influence on both acoustic and electric jazz, R&B and hip-hop, with his ongoing exploration of different musical genres, winning fourteen Grammy awards along the way. From his beginnings as a child prodigy to his work in Miles Davis's second great quintet; from his innovations as the leader of his own groundbreaking sextet to his collaborations with everyone from Wayne Shorter to Joni Mitchell and Stevie Wonder; Herbie Hancock reveals the method behind Hancock's undeniable musical genius. Hancock shares his musical influences, colorful behind-the-scenes stories, his long and happy marriage, and how Buddhism inspires him creatively and personally. Honest, enlightening, and as electrifyingly vital as the man who wrote it, Herbie Hancock promises to be an invaluable contribution to jazz literature and a must-read for fans and music lovers. (Viking)
This evening Herbie Hancock will be in conversation with LA Times Jazz Critic Don Heckman about his life, career and his craft.

Johnny Mathis
DESCRIPTION
Since his first two hits, Wonderful, Wonderful and Chances Are hit the top of the charts in 1956, Johnny Mathis has continued to entertain legions of fans with his beautiful style and way around a song. He has received four Grammy nominations and been inducted into the Grammy Award Hall of Fame twice. According to record historian Joel Whitburn, Mathis is one of only five recording artists to have Top 40 hits spanning each of the four decades since 1955. Amazingly, his second No. 1 hit single, Too Much, Too Little, Too Late (recorded with Deniece Williams), came almost 21 years after his very first No.1 hit single. In a word or two Mathis remains Wonderful!
