The Holler Sessions

August 04 - August 20, 2017 in the Dowling Studio

Staged as a live radio show, The Holler Sessions centers on one man’s burning obsession for American jazz. Ray, an explosive Kansas City DJ, broadcasts his love of jazz from his shoddy studio with an infectious passion for this uniquely American art form. His maniacal rants, razor-sharp insights, and mildly scatological humor are interspersed with extraordinary music and lots of space for listening. The Holler Sessions serves as a jazz primer for the uninitiated, a powerful reminder for jazz fans and an irreverent love letter to the best thing America has ever created, and then forgotten. 

Part of the Level Nine Series, devoted to community dialogue about today’s most significant topics and questions.
