Evolution of Jazz, Part II

Course number : MA109   
« back to classes page
Jazz evolved from Dixieland in the late 1920s to its peak popularity in the mid-1930s, known as The Swing Era. As the 1940s approached, a musical revolution was quietly taking place in Harlem, while simultaneously jazz was emerging into the concert hall. We shall use videos and recordings by the most influential musicians of the age to relive this dynamic era of the development of America’s native music.
