Who says the thrill is gone? What is jazz? It was in New Orleans that the bright flash of European horns ran into the dark rumble of African drums…it was like lightning meeting thunder. The local cats took that sound and put it together with the music they heard in churches and barrooms and they blew in a new music called jazz…a wild, jubilant music. Spend an hour and learn about the men and women who made jazz what it is today. Sponsored by the Richard Gordon Memorial Fund.
