Description:
"The NAC Big Band playing in Woodruff Park at the opening event for the Atlanta Free Jazz Festival"--Jim Alexander's annotations.
Neighborhood Arts Center musician-in-residence and Life Force jazz band member Joe Jennings (front row center) and Life Force jazz band member Howard Nicholson (front row left) lead the Neighborhood Arts Center Big Band II at the opening event of the first Atlanta Free Jazz Festival held in Woodruff Park late in August 1978. 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.
