The Arts Society Hamburg is holding a lecture
entitled "The Age of Jazz" by Sandy Burnett (in
English language).

One hundred years ago a group of American musicians docked in London, bringing with them for the very first time one of the twentieth century’s most important musical genres: jazz, a fascinating blend of rigorous structure, free-wheeling creativity, close-knit ensemble work and improvisation. The talk touches on the disparate influences which lay behind the emergence of jazz, and his musical illustrations range from the blues, ragtime and the very earliest jazz recordings through to classics by Louis Armstrong’s Hot Five and the Duke Ellington Orchestra, and the dawn of the Swing Era.

The evening will be concluded with a concert featuring a group of musicians from the Hochschule für Musik und Theater, led by British jazz clarinetist Samantha Wright. The audience can expect to experience music associated with early jazz musicians such as Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong and Fats Waller.
