When legendary trumpeter Miles Davis was asked “What is jazz?” his answer was – “I’ll play it first and tell you what it is later.” Although his playing was certainly a masterful demonstration of jazz, there is no record of him ever actually answering the question.
To answer this question, Jim will explore five elements of jazz. Through discussion as well as performed examples of each element, expect to have a deeper appreciation for jazz, as well as an answer to the question – “What is jazz?”
Run time 60 min.
Personnel – solo presentation/performance
