The Arts Society of Benahavis will be presenting its first talk of the season on September 26th, 2023, titled “The Age of Jazz”, presented by Sandy Burnett.
Jazz stands as a pivotal genre in the music world, offering a mesmerizing mix of structured discipline, inventive spontaneity, tight-knit groups, and creative improvisations. Drawing from his dual roles as a musicologist and a performing artist, Sandy provides an insider’s perspective on jazz. His lecture delves into the genre’s formative years leading up to World War II, highlighting the diverse influences that birthed jazz. The musical samples span from foundational blues and ragtime to early jazz tracks, iconic pieces by Louis Armstrong’s Hot Five, the majestic sounds of the Duke Ellington Orchestra, and the inception of the Swing Era.
