NEA Jazz Masters Live Presents: Ahmad Jamal
Celebrated pianist-composer Ahmad Jamal continues his performance schedule around the world, as he has for well over the last four decades.

A child prodigy who began to play the piano at the age of 3, he began formal studies at 7. At once majestic and familiar, the soon-to-be 78-years-old maestro, who was a major influence on Miles Davis, continues to expand his fan base, selling out concerts and garnering awards and honors. Check out a true master in the best venue in town!

The Manship Cult Film Series: Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas
GoodFellas immortalizes the hilarious, horrifying life of actual gangster Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), from his teen years on the streets of New York to his anonymous exile under the Witness Protection Program. The director's kinetic style is perfect for recounting Hill's ruthless rise to power in the 1950s as well as his drugged-out fall in the late 1970s; in fact, no one has ever rendered the mental dislocation of cocaine better than Scorsese. Scorsese uses period music perfectly, not just to summon a particular time but to set a precise mood.
