This lecture, designed for jazz fans and newcomers alike, celebrates America’s most distinctive music and its impact on global culture. Jazz is a genre broad in scope with the power to cross multiple borders: geographical, political, economic, racial, and religious. The key to jazz is its connection to recorded sound. It was the first musical genre shaped by modern technology – the first world-wide music phenomenon.
As Professor Celenza demonstrates in this multi-media lecture featuring film clips, dance steps, historic photos, and recordings, jazz has never stopped changing. From the Blues and Dixieland to Swing, BeBop, Cool Jazz, and Fusion, the genre offers something for everyone. If you’re one of those Kansas City residents who has always asked: “What’s all the fuss about?” when it comes to jazz, you’ll leave the lecture a die-hard fan – guaranteed!
