Jazz from New Orleans to Big Band Swing covers the first half-century of Jazz from its roots in West Africa, blues and ragtime through its flowering in turn-of-the-century New Orleans and then as it spread throughout the world via recordings. The mass popularity of jazz in the 1920s established New York and Chicago as new jazz capitols, and when large dance bands took on jazz style, the big band era was born. The big bands dominated popular music until the end of World War II, when the modern small-band bebop style began to emerge. Dr. Mike Daley leads this entertaining and informative course covering greats like Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Jelly Roll Morton, Benny Goodman, Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Billie Holiday and many more. Each lecture is richly illustrated with rare photos, video clips, and musical selections.
