This course is a comprehensive survey of jazz styles and trends that developed after 1950, beginning with Hard Bop, moving through the Avant Garde, and leading into current developments in jazz. Seminal figures and works in jazz of these decades will be examined within their socio-historical framework. (Distribution Reqs:Arts)

Learning Goals:   Students will achieve an awareness and an appreciation for the roots, tradition and broadly framed evolution of Modern Jazz by exploring, in chronology, highlights of the recorded legacies of the primary innovators. The impact of these classic recordings on the evolution of the art, as well as the multiplicity of stylistic tendencies set in motion, will be discussed, and related to, where appropriate, the socio-historical context of the era.
