The Story of Early Jazz


From Marching Bands to Big Bands

Jazz burst upon the musical scene in 1917 with recordings by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band leading to the 1920s being called the Jazz Age.  This two part program will trace the development of jazz from its roots in Ragtime and Marching Bands to its reception in the 1920s to how it became the dominant form of popular music in the 1930s. 

Gordon will be doing this program in conjunction with Dorot, a New York based program.  The presentation will be through Zoom at 2 pm EST on August 5th with part two on August 12th also at 2 pm EST.  The program requires registration for the Zoom link and is free to the public.
