American Art and Democracy Come Together in Jazz


with Wilbur W. Rehmann

musician

America is the only place where the art form called jazz could have been created. Rehmann begins by describing the roots of jazz in the field hollers and work songs of slaves and follows the art form through to the modern jazz era of the ‘40s, ‘50s, ‘60s, and beyond. Rehmann illustrates points with examples from recordings, his own saxophone playing, and video footage.
