CourseGraphic If you enjoy classical music or the pops, you’ll love the experience of All That Jazz. The study group will explore jazz history, composers, arrangers, musicians and vocalists from the early African/American spirituals, post-Civil War and Scott Joplin, the Roaring 20s, the Depression, pre and post WWII, Bebop, Gypsy Jazz and conclude the semester with Modern Jazz of the late 1960s through New Age of the early twenty-first century. A few of the many composers and artists to be included are: Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Dave Brubeck, Harry James, Les Brown, Glenn Miller, Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, the Dorsey Brothers, Stan Kenton and Frank Sinatra. We'll study the elements of jazz from "Stride" Piano, to Swing and Modern jazz. Discover how Glenn Miller achieved his own distinctive sound or what made Sinatra…Sinatra. Study group discussions will be multi-media based, using examples from recordings, films, and other media. Live classroom performances will be arranged when possible. Both Canvas and email communication will be utilized plus selected readings will be posted using both methods. Join us and share this musical experience. No class on 11/28/19.
