Grab your students' attention with this foot-tapping introduction to that distinctly American-born medium, the jazz band. The program explores the interchangable roles of the three sections-reeds, brasses, and rhythm-to analyze how jazz is created. Key elements in jazz are also explained, including the call-and-response pattern first found in Africa, the syncopation of polyrhythms common to both African and Caribbean music, and later developments of blue notes and improvisation. Many jazz greats-including Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Benny Goodman-may be seen and heard throughout the program. Outstanding comtemporary and historical footage as well as photographs of key events in the evolution of jazz leave the viewer with an indelible impression of the imcomparable jazz band.
