As a musical language, jazz is the first indigenous American style to affect music in the rest of the world. This course will teach the musician and non-musician alike how to identify the musical parameters used in jazz composition and performance. We shall look at the historical and social impact of slavery, segregation, drugs, and the growth of international attention on this art form, as well as the role of women jazz musicians. Offered alternate years. III.O, V.6a
