Jews and Jazz (Parts 1 & 2)
The informative and educational presentation of Jews and Jazz explores the meaning of Jewish involvement in American jazz. The sessions, with the use of audio materials, will demonstrate how American Jews used jazz to develop three kinds of identities: to become more American, to emphasize their minority status and to become more Jewish. It will also explore the connections among Jews and Afro-Americans in the performance, production and promotion of jazz music. Part 1 will focus on early Jazz (including the music of George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw). It will continue with the use of liturgical music and the mix with traditional Jewish music. Part 2 will focus on Jewish Jazz musicians and how they abandoned their heritage to become some of the world’s most famous jazz musicians (Stan Getz, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, Red Rodney, Lew Soloff, etc).
Both sessions include a question and answer session.
