AAS 125 - Jazz: The Listener’s Guide

3 credits C, D
Study of jazz based on listening and class discussion. The course is intended to increase awareness of the roots of jazz within the African-American community and of the cross-cultural fertilizations occurring throughout its recent history. Although academic and technical studies of jazz were established in the 50s, it is only within the past fifteen years that these studies have led to the recognition of jazz as a truly valued American art form.
