Summary:
Take an educational and entertaining look at the history of jazz and learn about the performers who shaped this American musical style. Students trace the popularity of the jazz sound from different cities throught the 1900s to today with this easy-to-use, interactive CD-ROM. This program demonstrates how jazz was created by the descendants of the slaves brought here from Africa and how it preserves the spirit and beat of African drum music. Students also discover that jazz is much more than a kind or type of music; it's essentially a "way" of playing music. Featureing the sights and sounds of jazz music legends, including Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Scott Joplin, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, and other, this program will "jazz up" your students' interest in this wonderful music genre!
