Local 802 AFM Presents Jazz Mentors Panel at Jazz Congress
About once a month, Local 802 AFM presents free Jazz Mentors panels, usually at the union, on various topics of interests to the jazz community. Each panel features experts in the industry sharing knowledge and advice with jazz musicians and students. On Thursday, Local 802 brought a panel about the artist-manager relationship to Jazz Congress, an annual gathering of the jazz community put on by Jazz at Lincoln Center and Jazz Times magazine. Acclaimed artist managers Laura Hartmann, Michelle Taylor, and Karen Kennedy shared their insights about navigating the complicated relationship between a musician and their manager to a packed room of musicians.
