SEATTLE, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- The Experience Music Project of Seattle is in the midst of its fourth annual Jazz in January series.

The multifaceted program features concerts by trombonist Robin Eubanks, pianist Jessica Williams, the Klezmatics and singers Kevin Mahogany and Dee Daniels. The latter pair will headline a Jan. 30-31 Vocal Jazz Festival, which includes individuals and vocal jazz groups from area colleges and high schools.

The series by the music museum also includes a jazz on film presentation, an exhibit of works by jazz photographer Lee Friedlander and workshops that offer jazz guitar and piano lessons to beginning musicians. A multidisciplinary assembly, designed for grades 7-12, will introduce young adults to the basics of jazz music and jazz's importance in American culture.

The Experience Music Project was developed by Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen and architect Frank Gehry to help expand energize Seattle's arts scene -- and house Allen's huge collection of Jimi Hendrix memorabilia.
