Courses / Art, Music, Dance and Film / JAZZ: THE SOUL AND THE SOUND
Coordinators: Vivian Oliver, Stewart Parker, Deborah Yaffe
This semester Quest’s jazz course will continue to focus on one of the oldest jazz instruments, the trumpet. We will present contemporary jazz trumpeters, those who can be seen performing in New York and other parts of the country. We will look at their lives, influences, evolution of style and legacy to the world of jazz. With extensive use of video and audio material, we will examine artists with a wide variety of styles.
