A History of Jazz Britain

A History of Jazz in Britain (new)

THL Mondays 1015-1215 fortnightly from 14th Oct

This course continues into next term

Convener: Gordon Bull

The arrival of the Original Dixieland Jazz Band in London in 1919 gives us a starting point for jazz in Britain. This series of 10 talks (5 this term and 5 the following term), will trace jazz in Britain decade by decade from the 20s through to today. You will hear about local jazz men (and the occasional women) and visitors to our shores, mainly from America but also from elsewhere and the influence they had. This rich jazz history will delight you and inform you, get your toes tapping and bring back memories, so come and join us.

The talks for this term are:

14th Oct Jazz in the 20s Gordon Bull
28th Oct Jazz in the 30s Francis Gould-Marks
11th Nov Jazz in the 40s Derek Blayney
25th Nov Jazz in the 50s Malcolm Cornwall
9th Dec Jazz in the 60s Roger Dickinson
