Course Description

The story of New Orleans jazz is the story of a unique musical style that impacted popular culture far beyond the bounds of the Crescent City. Performers like Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, and Pete Fountain became known worldwide. Using video clips and lots of recorded music, in this course we will examine the complex origins of jazz, its rise in popularity in the 1920s and decline in the Depression years, and its revival in the years after World War II.
