This course traces the evolution of jazz from roots in African, European, and American folk music to its emergence as a new art music that is indigenous to the U.S.A. The stylistic genres of jazz history are studied including Dixieland, Blues, Ragtime, Bebop, Free Jazz, and Jazz Rock Fusion. These styles are also discussed in their relationship to popular music. Recordings are studied to exemplify the skills of major jazz artists and the styles with which they are associated.
