The workshop will focus on the personalities who influenced the evolution of this quintessentially American music form. A performer's recorded performances and dialogue will be used to provide enlightenment on the era and his/her style, ideas and objectives. Each participant will select a personality and prepare a presentation (maximum 15 minutes) to precede a selection of recorded music (30 minutes), leaving time for discussion to follow. This is an enthusiastic and highly interactive class, in which all are welcome, from beginners to those who have enjoyed and absorbed all aspects of Jazz for many years.
