Dazzle your students with the sights and sounds of jazz heard, and seen, through the ages. This comprehensive survey traces the history of jazz from its roots in slave songs to present-day innovations and uses numerous well-known compositions, film clips, and original recordings to explore the differing forms. Live footage of Billy Taylor's trio-dynamically demonstrating basic techniques, musical terms, and styles-is interwoven throughout. This stellar production can be used in numerous ways: as a historical survey, a focus on several jazz styles, a chance to meet famous musicians, or an illustration of jazz technique. Whatever approach you choose, your students will be given an unparalleled opportunity-one that can't be attained even at a live performance.
