Description:
"Joe Jennings and Howard Nicholson of Life Force Jazz Band playing a concert in the NAC multipurpose room."--Jim Alexander's annotations.
The Life Force jazz band performs at the Neighborhood Arts Center in Atlanta during 1980. Neighborhood Arts Center musician-in-residence Joe Jennings and his partner Howard Nicholson formed the core of Life Force. 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 their original work and jazz classics. Although Jennings and Nicholson went on to join other groups, they also continued to perform as Life Force, putting on many shows at the Neighborhood Arts Center and with Neighborhood Arts Center musicians.
