The Arts Society Lecture: The Age of Jazz

Chipping Sodbury Town Hall

The Age of Jazz, by Sandy Burnett

Each lecture, which lasts approximately one hour, is given in the morning and afternoon.

Jazz is one of music's most important genres: a fascinating blend of rigorous structure, free-wheeling creativity, close-knit ensembles and imaginative improvisation. Drawing on his experience both as musicologist and gigging musician, the speaker can shed light on jazz from the inside. His talk covers the early years of jazz up to the Second World War, and touches on the disparate influences which lay behind the emergence of jazz. Musical illustrations range from the blues, ragtime and the very first jazz recordings through to classics by Louis Armstrong's Hot Five including the Duke Ellington Orchestra and the dawn of the Swing Era.
