Jazz Appreciation Talk & Performance: A Brief History of Jazz

Let Senior Associate Music Director Weixiang Tan, with a select group of jazz musicians bring you on a journey through the development of jazz in the 20th century, from its roots in New Orleans to its current cosmopolitan form. We will also be looking at the historical impact of jazz in modern Chinese culture, with a panoramic view from its heydays in the roaring 20s, to Latin-laced mambos in the 60s and 70s, and its eventual assimilation into Chinese pop culture in modern times.

Explore an art form that encourages creative expression through spontaneous improvisation as a focus, yet is constantly evolving, always accepting of new developments in art and culture. In the words of Wynton Marsalis, ‘Jazz music is the power of now’.
