Held in conjunction with the WEA at the Norden Farm Centre for the Arts.
What is jazz? Where did it come from? How did it develop? How can we develop and increase our enjoyment and appreciation of this exhilarating, yet sometimes seemingly intimidating art form?
Presented by one of the most highly respected jazz double bass players in the country, this day school will look at the origins of jazz music, provide some strategies for listening to it, and survey the main styles of the genre in a way that is accessible both to those keen to ‘get into’ the music, and those who already enjoy listening to it.
Illustrated with iconic recordings, ‘live’ demonstrations, this event could be the start of a lifelong love of jazz.
A concert from The Kershaw/Vintskevich Quartet in the evening will follow. Tickets for this can be purchased separately from the Norden Farm box office in advance from September 2023 (01628 788997; Norden Farm website), or during the day school if places remain.
