The totality of musical endeavor that we call Jazz is made up of so many influences and components that there is no one perfect example that represents all that is this unique art form. Rather, Jazz is a quilt, but also much more than a patchwork of ideas, experiences, and sonic textures that cannot be adequately contained in a one room or even house. In this hour, we will explore several of the musical houses in which Jazz resides, with no two exactly alike. Get ready for a listening adventure.
