In our private meeting room at the Club, our music instructors will lead our final class with short biographies of some of the most influential early jazz musicians, including Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, Eddie Condon, James P. Johnson, and Fats Waller. We’ll hear live piano, flute, and vocal performances of tunes for which these figures are best remembered, along with some representative recordings. Our presentation concludes with a special wrap-up session about the music we’ve experienced during the program.
