- "NAC music instructor Joe Jennings with one of his students."--Jim Alexander's annotations.
Neighborhood Arts Center musician-in-residence Joe Jennings teaches a girl to play jazz music on her clarinet at the Neighborhood Arts Center. Jennings, a saxophonist, worked at the Neighborhood Arts Center from February 1976 until September 1978 when he left to teach music at Morehouse College in Atlanta. In the early 1970s Jennings and Howard Nicholson formed the Life Force jazz band in order to perform original work and jazz classics. Although Jennings and Nicholson went on to join other groups, they continue to perform as Life Force.
