Events for November 1, 2017
The period of 1926-1929 has been called the first Golden Age of jazz. There are several reasons why this claim has been made. First, the music had matured beyond its original novelty and established itself as a viable musical form. Second, the first great jazz stars, such as Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Fletcher Henderson, Bix Beiderbecke and Duke Ellington, experienced creative peaks during this time. Third, the new technology of electrically amplified sound recording captured the music with remarkable fidelity. Finally, record companies actively began seeking and recording jazz artists, resulting in an expanded audience of fans and influencing future jazz musicians.
This session will tell the story of how these forces combined to create the first great body of work in jazz. Numerous musical examples will be presented, including several of the best recordings in the history of the genre.Find out more »
