Title: And All That Jazz
Course Section Number: BLS-270-02
Department: Black Studies
Description: This course will explore the history and methods of American Jazz. Students will study the musical genres, geographical issues, and social movements that led to the creation of jazz and the development of the genre into present day. Major composers, arrangers, band leaders, and performers will be studied. As much of this music was derived from the combination of white and black experiences, racial issues associated with the arts and artistic creation will also be studied and discussed. The course will include a creative component where students will choose to write lyrics, compose music, and/or perform some jazz themselves. No prior musical experience is required to have a great time learning about jazz in American heritage!
